Scheduled ServSafe Manager Course Update

  • The Spring in-person course that was scheduled for April 30th has been cancelled due to COVID-19.  We will be reassessing the situation in future months and will email again once we have set a date.  In the meantime, Food Handler training can still be done online with organizations like the National Restaurant Association (ServSafe) and StateFoodSafety.  If staff want to obtain a Food Manager Certification, StateFoodSafety now offers a social-distancing-friendly online course and all-online exam proctoring option  https://www.statefoodsafety.com/
  • ServSafe is offering their Food Handler online course (normally $15) for free until April 30th. It can be done in English, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese.  This is a great training for employees who do not need to take the more in-depth Food Manager course. Employees just need to create a ServSafe account and follow the link below. 
  • Lastly, they also have two short COVID-19 training’s that cover some common sense precautions that employees can take.
