Food Classes & Permits
Food safety training assures that the permit holder understands the importance of good hygienic practices and that they have knowledge on how to protect food against contamination. Local city ordinances require that food workers have a valid food permit from THD in their possession while at work.
Volunteers serving food or beverages need food safety training too. THD offers FREE onsite training as well as online training options.
All local food service employees must have an original, valid Food Handler Permit in their possession while at work.
Many area food service establishments are required to have at least one certified food service manager in order to adequately train and supervise employees.
