Cutting Board Racks for Following Sanitation Rules

Help my students apply the knowledge taught about cleaning and storing cutting boards to prevent food-borne illness. The racks would help keep boards from getting a sour smell with new boards replacing old ones.

My Students

The students that come to our school have great work ethic skills. A number of the students come from farming and ranching backgrounds, understand what a hard day’s work is all about. Other students have parents that work in the oil field industry, with the third group of students have parents that are retraining at the local community college new skills to meet the local demands for technical job skills.

We continue to have high ACT scores and encourage all students to be involved in school activities such as Culinary Arts, welding, STEM programs, and Applied Technology.

A number of the students have jobs after school to gain work experience, skills and learn about different career options.

As a staff, we encourage students to learn about different types of careers, not only within the community​ but also jobs that are worldwide. Students are also encouraged to learn about t post-secondary educations, such as associate or bachelor degrees, technical degrees or apprenticeships within different career clusters.

My Project

Students often say; "What is that nasty smell in this cabinet!" "Why it is just the cutting boards we will be using today!"

One of the goals in the Foods and Culinary lab is to have students follow sanitation procedures to wash, rinse, dry and store cutting boards.

We use these boards on a daily basis and have no quality way to store them. In a short time, the boards can become moldy and sour-smelling, creating a sanitation concern.

With the racks we could store the boards so air circulates to help dry them out. The extra cutting boards would be used to replace the cutting boards that are in a "stinky" situation.
