The results of laboratory tests identified that 51.35% of snacks were contaminated with bacteria, with details of 32.43% contaminated with potential pathogenic Escherichia coli bacteria and 45.54% contaminated with Klebsiella pneumonia bacteria. Objective: This activity aims to increase the knowledge of food vendors in terms of managing snacks and reduce the number of percent snacks that contaminated with microbes. Methods: The main activities were the training of food and beverage management and cadre assistance that held after training to see changes in the behavior of food vendors and laboratory tests to see percent of snacks containing microbial contamination. Results: There was no difference in food vendors’ knowledge of snacks management before and after training, and 72.8% of snacks contained bacteria, but the cleanliness and hygiene behavior of food vendors were increased. Conclusion: This activity has provided increased awareness about safe and healthy food and beverage management practices to food vendors around the site but there are still many snacks that contain microbes even increased from the results of last year’s study.
