Food safety

Failure to follow the correct food safety guidance can have serious consequences, even mild cases of food poisoning can be dangerous, especially for the elderly and sick. 

Food safety matters and we must do all we can to protect Newham residents and the NHS.​

If you or your organisation is planning to offer food to people in your community please email [email protected]. ​

And follow this guide (PDF) for information on best practices for preparing food and for delivering to vulnerable members of the community.
