Keeping Food Safe
Ensuring people can safely consume food and drink without getting sick.
Food Providers Should be Held to a Standard of Providing Safe Food
People have a right to trust the food they buy. We fight for them to ensure that these companies don’t take short cuts and provide the highest possible standard of quality to consumers.
Resources to Educate
We help people know about their legal options and how they can take care of their themselves when preparing food and meals.
Help You Receive Compensation
If you have medical bills, been forced to miss work, or any other damages from your illness, you shouldn’t be accountable for those costs.
Who We Are
We strive to fight for your justice if you have gotten sick from consuming food or drink from restaurants, stores, or large corporations. When restaurants and businesses sell food for a profit, the food should be safe to consume. Keep Food Safe provides legal help and educational resources to spread awareness about food poisoning and to ensure justice for victims.
