Preparing Safe Meals

Packing the Cooler For a Road Trip

Suzanne Driessen, Extension Educator — Food Safety

Reviewed 2013

I'm going on a vacation and I'm not afraid...afraid of getting sick from a food related illness, that is. Planning is the key to food safety so you don't get sick during your trip. You need to decide what you are going to eat; how you're going to cook it; and what equipment you'll need.

With a little planning and preparation, you can do some fine dining just about anywhere—parks, roadside rest stops, in your car. Keep food safety in mind when packing the cooler.
