USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) held its “Bring Our Kids to Work Day” on Thursday, April 28, 2022. It marked the first time in three years that the event was returned to the FSIS calendar.
“Bring Our Kids to Work Day” does not mean the children of FSIS meat and poultry inspectors are able to join Mom or Dad for the day at slaughter or processing plants. Instead, a two-hour program was available on Thursday where the kids could “join a virtual interactive classroom for food safety lessons and activities and for hearing directly from the experts about why FSIS’ work is important and what sorts of education and experience they use on the job every day.”
The event took place over Microsoft Teams and a partial recording of the event will be available and placed on the FSIS intranet.
The following resources are available to employees and their children t”o encourage learning more about what we do here at FSIS and help them explore what is possible in their futures. ” The event page will be updated with the event agenda and additional resources as they become available.
