This interactive workshop provided attendees an opportunity to learn from the FDA about some of our current and future food defense planning tools and resources, while also providing exposure to the latest tool: the Food Related Emergency Exercise Bundle (FREE-B).
A demonstration of the FREE-B was held via a walk-through of one of the exercises, illustrating how flexible and functional these scenarios are in addressing the needs of our state, local, tribal and territorial regulatory partners.
Highlights from several FDA based funding opportunities were discussed, and successes realized were shared with the attendees, in the hopes of inspiring them to pursue these funding opportunities in the future.
