Cooking for large groups is not the same as cooking as cooking for yourself or family. Nonprofit, volunteer-run groups that prepare food to be served or sold to the public must be sure that food handlers are preparing food safely. Food not prepared safely may lead to a food-borne illness outbreak, personal suffering, and problems for volunteer organizations.
