District Environmental Health Office Holds Sensitisation on Nutrition, Personal Hygiene, Hand washing and Medical Screening for School Feeding Caterers, Food and Drink Vendors

The District Environmental Health Unit yesterday ended a one week long sensitization of various categories of food and beverage vendors, including School Feeding Caterers across the district. The groups were sensitised on various topics including Personal Hygiene, Hand washing and nutrition.

Speaking to the participants, the District Environmental Health Officer, Mr. Emil Agboso, entreated food vendors to take the exercise seriously especially as we were still not out of the covid 19 pandemic. He admonished them to always make sure food they served the general public were always hot. He continued that this was a sure way to keep the society safe from infections and cholera break outs. The exercise also included medical screening for all vendors district wide. Over 2000 food and beverage vendors were screened and issued with certificates.
