Summer provides a break from school and work, but we shouldn’t break from being smart about food safety. The beautiful thing about a picnic is its versatility. Make it simple or sophisticated. Spend days planning the perfect party, or minutes packing the essentials for some impromptu fun.

Check the weather forecast before heading out on your picnic. If there is a chance of rain be sure to pack an umbrella and plan accordingly. Or you can change plans and build a blanket fort indoors to enjoy your picnic in.

Always remember to clean up after yourself and leave no trace of your activities. Pack garbage sacs and anything else you may need to transport trash, serving ware and leftovers. Leave the area better than you found it.

But most importantly, have fun!!

Happy picnic-ing!
