Food Safety Training


NEW: Online Basic Food Safety Training

Now it’s even easier to fulfill the yearly food safety training requirement. You can do the training online. It’s as simple as reviewing the material, taking a quiz, and receiving a certificate. Please allow 45 minutes to an hour to review the presentation. This can be self study or a presentation you show staff or volunteers. The quiz is available online or in print. Once your quiz is submitted, allow at least 2 weeks for your certificate to arrive.
