The University of Delaware Cooperative Extension is offering a Food Safety Training from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. March. 10 at the Kent County Cooperative Extension office, 69 Transportation Circle, Dover.

The seven-hour class will be taught by Kathleen Splane, UD Family & Consumer Science extension educator.

"This training meets the food safety requirements by the State of Delaware for those individuals who want to prepare non-hazardous foods in their own home for sale locally,” said Splane.

Examples of nonhazardous foods are baked goods such as cookies, muffins, cakes, beads, jams, jellies and preserves and candy.

The training, certification and inspections of kitchens are required under Delaware regulations adopted in 2006 and apply to individuals and small business cottage industries wishing to process non-potentially hazardous foods in residential kitchens for sale to the public.

Cost is $50.
