Senior Solutions has purchased a block of seats for the nationally recognized ServSafe Food Handler Course, and is offering these seats for free to volunteers and employees of the many food sites around the area who serve our seniors. The course helps food preparers and servers to be aware of food safety protocols, so that food-borne illnesses can be minimized in congregate dining or home delivery operations. Those who complete the course receive a Certificate in Food Handling. The three-hour course is taken online, at one’s own pace and schedule, making it accessible to the largest possible number of people. It can be taken in several sessions and does not have to be completed all at once. Those meal sites that prepare food for others should strongly consider having at least one person on their staff complete the course, both for safety and liability purposes.
Those interested should contact Nutrition & wellness Director Thom Simmons at firstname.lastname@example.org.
