HEALTHCare Today: Kuala Lumpur, 07 April 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the birth of countless online community food delivery groups and a new way of making a living. In recognizing this, the Academy of Occupational and Environmental Medicine Malaysia (AOEMM), in partnership with Facebook (FB) Group CARING MOMS, has launched a health education campaign ahead of the month of Ramadhan.
Themed Healthy Food Handlers, Food Safety Assured (Pengendali Sihat, Makanan Selamat), the campaign calls for all homegrown food handlers to focus on the safe, clean, and hygienic preparation and delivery of food, and to vaccinate against typhoid disease to ensure public confidence in the food being consumed by themselves and their families.
FB Group CARING MOMS has long been a strong advocate for proper food handling training for food entrepreneurs promoting their businesses via Jobs for CARING MOMS and CARING MOMS on FB. “We strongly believe in the safe, hygienic preparation and delivery of food, and will continue to encourage CARING MOMS members and followers to attend the MoH-approved food handlers courses and to vaccinate against typhoid,” said Shera Ann Bosco, founder of CARING MOMS.
