The Penn State Food Safety Web Site was created in response to an expressed need by county Extension agents for a well organized, user-friendly Web site for finding food safety and preservation information. Agents reported that the site is used between one time per week and one time per month and that the food preservation database is the most frequently visited section. Food safety information was reported to be easier and faster to find compared to traditional resources. Agent acceptance of the Web site offers an opportunity for expanded use of the Internet for increasing communication and training activities.
