Food Safety Certification Classes Offered in May
The Food Bank will offer two sessions of Food Safety Certification Classes in May for member agencies. Each 15-hour session culminates with an examination using the nationally accredited ServSafe program. The certification classes are open to one person per agency, with priority given to those agencies that do not yet have a person certified in food safety.
