/Food Handler Safety Training Card Program

The Food Handler Safety Training Card program reopened on April 6, 2021, for first-time and renewing clients. An appointment is required and may be made online using our appointment scheduling form. Due to the recent closure, clients are able to work until April 30, 2022 without a Food Handler Safety Training Card.

First-time applicants and renewing clients can make an appointment to take the in-person test for their cards on or before that date. The card fee is $20. Clients who need duplicate cards can come in without an appointment and are seen as capacity allows.

Late fees for expired renewals are being waived through April 30, 2022. Regular fees will resume after this time.

  • Only the card applicant is permitted to enter. Children, spouses, friends and relatives are not allowed.
  • Please arrive by your appointment time. Late arrivals will be denied entry and will need to reschedule.
