With Thanksgiving and other winter holidays coming up, you may need to cook holiday food at your home and then transport it to a loved one’s home. In order to safely drive with food in your vehicle, follow these tips for transporting holiday food this winter.
Use a travel container
If you’re in charge of making a hot casserole dish, be sure to purchase a travel container for the dish to secure the food. You should then place the container in your trunk between larger items to help prevent it from sliding around.
Be mindful of your slow cooker
Slow cookers with lockable lids are great for transporting food, but they can also be dangerous objects to have in the cabin if you get into a car accident. As such, put the slow cooker as well as other large objects, like a turkey, inside the trunk and away from passengers if possible.
Prepare for leftovers
If you suspect there may be leftovers at your gettogether, be sure to bring plastic bags and plastic storage containers so you conveniently take food back to your home. It’s also a good idea to have a bag to carry all of your containers.
