It is always a treat to eat out at a favorite restaurant or community event, and as consumers, we expect the food to be safe. We must rely on the food handlers to provide the safest meal possible.
K-State Research and Extension in partnership with the Kansas Restaurant and Hospitality Association provides training for all food handlers. The ServSafe® program is a national certification program designed to teach safe handling practices to those who serve food to the public.
ServSafe® Food Handlers class is scheduled for Monday, March 20, 2023 from 1:30-4:30pm at the Cottonwood Extension Office at 601 Main in Hays. The class covers basic food safety, personal hygiene, preventing cross contamination, time and temperature, cleaning and sanitation. The course is for commercial food safety employees and non-profit volunteers. The cost for the course is $15 and covers the cost of the ServSafe® Food Handlers manual, training materials and refreshments. Registration is due by March 17, 2023. Please call the office or email if you have any questions or want to register for the class.
