ObjectiveTo evaluate the effectiveness of a food safety map as an educational method with English language learners.MethodsEnglish language learner community members (n = 73) were assigned randomly to participate in 1 of 3 experimental conditions: food safety map, cooking class, and control. Participants in the food safety map and cooking class conditions completed a pre-education demographic and cooking history questionnaire, a post-education knowledge and intention questionnaire, and a 2-week post–cooking and food safety habits assessment. Participants in the control group received no educational training but completed the pre- and 2-week post-education assessments.ResultsThe cooking class and the map class were both effective in increasing food safety knowledge. Specifically, by comparing with the control group, they significantly increased participants' knowledge of safely cooking large meat (χ2 [df = 2, n = 66] = 40.87; P < .001; V∗ = .79) and correctly refrigerating cooked food (χ2 [df = 2, n = 73] = 24.87, P < .001; V∗ = .58). The two class types generated similar positive educational effects on boosting food safety behavioral intention (measured right after the class). The data collected 2 weeks after the classes suggested that individuals who took the classes followed the suggested food behaviors more closely than those in the control group (P < .01).Conclusions and ImplicationsThe food safety map is simple to use and prepare, beneficial for oral and visual learners, and inexpensive. Compared with a food safety cooking class, the map produces similar learning and behavioral outcomes.
