If you pass by any branches of Roadster Diner and Deek Duke, you will be intrigued to pick up one of the many colorful postcards that are distributed all over. Roadster diner and Deek Duke have teamed up with The Lebanese Association for Food Safety to initiate a national food safety campaign through their branches.
What are they? They are awareness cards designed to help create awareness about food safety. Messages like don't leave delivered food to your house for more than two hours outside the fridge, never defrost food outside the fridge... and so on. They are simple, creative and there is no way on earth anyone may not understand them.
I liked the idea and have picked up a few and hung them on my fridge...
