The Lincoln County Health Department has scheduled three Safe Food Handling Certification Classes for 2013 for anyone planning to prepare or serve food in Lincoln County. They will be held on Wednesday, February 20, Thursday, March 21, and Tuesday April 16, 2013. With the implementation of the new Food Ordinance adopted in October, 2011, there are new requirements for temporary events held in Lincoln County. This course will cover these changes as well as focus on proper food preparation, personal hygiene, sanitation procedures, and permit requirements. All participants will take a test at the end of the class for certification in safe food handling.
Class will be held in the Community Room at the South Entrance of the Health Department, located at #5 Health Department Drive in Troy. Registration will begin at 6 p.m. and class will commence promptly at 6:15 p.m. All students will receive a packet of information and some items needed for safe food preparation. Seats are reserved by advance payment only. To reserve a seat, please call Kim at (636) 528-6117 ext. 201.
