    • B.

      Always put food you want to take home with you in a To-Go container.

    Correct Answer
    C. Always put food you want to take home with you in a To-Go container.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Always put food you want to take home with you in a To-Go container." This is because the question asks for an exception, and the other two options are mentioned as things that must be done to comply with Food Safety Standards at Second Helpings. Using a new plate when making a return trip to the lunch table ensures that there is no cross-contamination. Using a utensil to grasp food from the lunch line helps maintain hygiene and prevents direct contact with hands. However, putting food you want to take home in a To-Go container is not a requirement mentioned in the question.

  • 3. 

    Letting meals sit too long before consuming can cause foodborne illness to arise.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Letting meals sit for a long time before consuming can lead to the growth of bacteria and other pathogens, which can cause foodborne illnesses. When food is left at room temperature, it creates an ideal environment for these microorganisms to multiply rapidly. Consuming such contaminated food can result in symptoms like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach cramps. Therefore, it is important to properly store and consume meals promptly to avoid the risk of foodborne illness.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Hand washing is an effective way to remove and reduce the number of microorganisms on the hands, which can help prevent the spread of infections and cross-contamination. By washing hands with soap and water or using hand sanitizers, individuals can eliminate harmful bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens that may be present on their hands. This simple practice is particularly crucial in healthcare settings, food preparation areas, and other environments where the risk of contamination is high. Therefore, it is true that hand washing plays a significant role in preventing cross-contamination of microorganisms.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Dry your hands and forearms with a cloth towel."

It is recommended to use disposable paper towels or air dryers to ensure proper hygiene.

      Both A and B

    • E.

      E. Both A and C

    Correct Answer
    E. E. Both A and C
    Explanation
    Volunteers who operate the tilt skillet are allowed to taste-test the recipe as long as they are wearing gloves and use a utensil. Wearing gloves ensures that the food remains hygienic and prevents any contamination. Using a utensil further minimizes the risk of spreading germs and maintains food safety standards. Therefore, both options A (wearing gloves) and C (using a utensil) are necessary for volunteers to taste-test the recipe.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Volunteers who need to refresh themselves in the kitchen are encouraged to do so with a drink as long as it is in_____.

    • A.

      An open coffee mug

    • B.

      A screw-top plastic bottle

    • C.

      A close-topped non-glass container with a straw or sip-top.

    Correct Answer
    C. A close-topped non-glass container with a straw or sip-top.
    Explanation
    Volunteers who need to refresh themselves in the kitchen are allowed to have a drink, but it must be in a close-topped non-glass container with a straw or sip-top. This is likely because open coffee mugs and screw-top plastic bottles can potentially spill or break, causing a safety hazard in the kitchen environment. Using a close-topped non-glass container with a straw or sip-top helps to prevent spills and accidents while allowing the volunteers to enjoy their drink.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    If you become hot and need to cool down you should use one of your kitchen work towels to wipe off your sweat.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Wiping off sweat with a kitchen work towel is not an effective way to cool down when feeling hot. Sweat helps to regulate body temperature by evaporating from the skin, which helps to cool the body. Using a towel to wipe off sweat can actually hinder the evaporation process and make it more difficult for the body to cool down. It is recommended to use other methods such as drinking water, finding shade, or using a fan to cool down when feeling hot.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Snacking on food in the kitchen is not okay because it can lead to a messy and unhygienic environment. It is important to eat in designated areas to avoid cross-contamination and maintain cleanliness in the kitchen. Additionally, snacking in the kitchen can attract pests and insects, which can be harmful to health and food safety. Therefore, it is recommended to consume food in appropriate areas outside the kitchen.

    • E.

      E. Wear beard guard when needed

    Correct Answer
    C. Cover shoes with approved food protectors
    Explanation
    Covering shoes with approved food protectors is a way to reduce cross-contamination in the kitchen. This helps to prevent any dirt, debris, or bacteria from being brought into the kitchen from outside. By covering the shoes, the risk of contamination is minimized, ensuring the safety and hygiene of the food preparation area.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Snacking in the Hub should not be done whenever you see open boxes left out on the table. This implies that snacking is only allowed when there are open boxes left out on the table, which is not true. The statement suggests that there may be a specific time or condition for snacking in the Hub, but it does not specify what that is. Therefore, the correct answer is False, as the statement is not a valid or complete rule for snacking in the Hub.
