Providing the population with safe and good quality food is one of the most important objectivesof every country. The outbreak and spread of foodborne diseases is independent of a country’s location ordevelopment level, and may occur everywhere. As most children spend their days at educational institutions,we shall focus on their food safety. Not only for their present state of health, but also because childhood nutritionand diet will basically determine their health in their adulthood and thus, influence the future economicand social performance of their society. This paper introduces background information about school cateringin Hungary, based upon the results of an overall food safety survey. The results of our research showedthat the food safety level of the different kitchen units is mostly determined by the level of food processingactivities. The technical and technological level of the school kitchens did not significantly influence thefood safety level of the kitchens. According to the results of our survey, improving the knowledge and theattitudes of employees in school kitchens is more important than technical and technological conditions.
