Food Handler Classes

The Food Handler Safety Class teaches important safety techniques for food handlers. Food handlers are essentially anyone who works in the food industry, including restaurants, schools, caterers, daycare’s and temporary vendors. Participants receive a food handlers safety card upon completion. Please note that our food handler class is not a ServSafe certification.

If you have already received formal food handler training from another Kansas City Metro jurisdiction, you only need that jurisdictions food handler card, if it is not expired.  You DO NOT need to transfer it to a Cass County Food Handler Card. Please see attachment for a list of participating jurisdictions. Food Handlers MOA w summary
