  • Always wash your hands with hot soapy water before preparing food. 
  • If your hair is long, tie it back or wear a cap. 
  • Wear a clean apron to protect your clothing from spills. 
  • Have an adult help you if you are using a sharp knife. 
  • Use paper or plastic pitchers and cups instead of glass. 
  • Cover your drinks and snacks between servings to keep bugs and dirt out. 
  • Use a ladle or tongs to serve ice. 
  • Provide a covered trash container to dispose of used cups and keep your area clutter-free. 
  • Never operate your stand alone. Have your classmates, friends and older brothers and sisters help. Ask your parents, teacher or another adult to supervise your sale.
