Shelley Feist

Term:

Since Oct 2003

Profile:

At the Partnership Ms. Feist has focused on bringing media attention to the Fight BAC!® consumer safe food handling messages, and on organizational development and effectiveness. She has guided creation of the Partnership’s Corporate Advisory Committee and the development, testing and launch of the Be Food Safe retail platform.  In the summer of 2009 she led the development of a new consumer resource at holidayfoodsafety.org.   Ms. Feist has appeared on NBC’s Today Show on the topic of safe food handling for consumers. Prior to joining PFSE, Ms. Feist was with the Pew Charitable Trusts, a private philanthropic foundation based in Philadelphia, PA where her work included an effort to assess and strengthen the policy development capacity of state-based organizations.   Ms. Feist has worked for two U.S Senators focusing on appropriations and domestic policy.  She served as Director of Government Liaison for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts under Chairman James D. Wolfensohn.

Leadership Statement:

The national non-profit Partnership for Food Safety Education is the only public-private collaborative that focuses exclusively on the prevention of foodborne illness at the point of consumer handling and preparation in the home. We deliver trusted, science-based behavioral health messaging and a network of resources that support consumers in their efforts to reduce the risk of foodborne illness.   Educating consumers about food safety is NOT the entire solution to eliminating illness.  But it is a critical aspect of prevention that cannot be ignored.  We believe that the Fight BAC!® campaign’s basic preventive practices of clean, separate, cook and chill should be common knowledge for all Americans, including kids.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided

Program Description:

According to the CDC foodborne infections will cause 48 million illnesses, 128,000 hospitalizations and 3,000 deaths this year.  We know that very young children are the most vulnerable population when it comes to serious foodborne illness that leads to hospitalization.  Children under 9 account for 56% of hospitalizations from two common foodborne infections - salmonellosis and campylobacteriosis.   The Partnership for Food Safety Education delivers trusted, science-based behavioral health messaging and a network of resources that support consumers in their efforts to reduce risk of foodborne illness.     Nationally, more than 14,000 public health educators, food industry members, cooperative extensions, teachers, dietitians, and consumers use Fight BAC!® materials to teach others about the importance of safe food handling to good health-reaching an estimated 7.5 million consumers each year.

Program Long-Term Success:

The Partnership is the catalyst for national collaboration in food safety education and a leader in developing ways to track outcomes against these Healthy People 2020 goals:   FS-1:  Reduce infections caused by key pathogens transmitted commonly through food FS-5:  Increase the proportion of consumers who follow key food safety practices

Program Short-Term Success:

A major accomplishment has been the building of the Partnership’s network.  In the past recent years, our number of contributing organizational partners has grown from 18 to 26, and our number of registered BAC! Fighter/Educators has grown from fewer than 9,000 to now 14,000.   With regard to our commitment to three (3) core focus areas we are making major strides.  Some of our areas of accomplishment include:   Focus Area (1): The Partnership convenes and supports practitioner communities inside and outside government to work together to improve outcomes in food safety education.   • A series of Webinars for BAC! Fighters intended to involve them in meaningful dialogue, learning and exchange around consumer education topics. (April & Sept.) • We convene the PFSE contributing partners three times per year, and invite guest speakers and interested nonprofits to join us for conversation on strategic goals, programs and activities. (Feb.; May; &Sept ) • We will be hosting the Consumer Food Safety Education Conference 2014, December 4 & 5th in Arlington, VA.   Focus Area (2):  The Partnership amplifies the collective efforts of thousands of partners/educators and helps them to tell the story of the impact their work has on protecting the health of consumers.   We believe that telling these stories helps to seed even more community-based activity which is a great way to connect with consumers one on one.   • We launched a variety of resources for BAC Fighters including a Field Educator Report blog at teamfoodsafety.org featuring the work of food safety educators across the country. Stories have come in from 4-H groups, schools, food banks, retailers and food industry associations. • We launched the Food Safe Families Action Pledge as a participatory tool to encourage field educators to adopt and utilize the Food Safe Families toolkit. 350 educators from 46 states have pledged to “follow the core four steps to food safety: Clean, Separate, Cook, and Chill!”  • We surveyed BAC! Fighters about their specific program interests, needs and actions. • We communicate via weekly e-cards to a list of more than 14,000 BAC! Fighters.   Focus Area (3): The Partnership leads efforts to evaluate the impact of consumer food safety education, and anticipates needed changes in program approaches that will better align programs with intended outcomes.   • We have developed a concept paper that outlines a process and roles of stakeholders in identifying a metric or metrics and data gathering options for measuring the impact of consumer safe food handling education efforts in the United States.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

The Partnership for Food Safety Education delivers trusted, science-based behavioral health messaging and a network of resources that support consumers in their efforts to reduce risk of foodborne illness.   The Partnership teams with more than 14,000 food safety and health educators nationwide to ensure that food safety education efforts are effective, collaborative, measurable and visible, and supports these educators with access to free, evidence-based materials they can use to connect with consumers in their communities on this important health topic.
