ServSafe Food Handlers Classes

ServSafe Food Handlers Classes

Food safety is in the news! Numerous food borne illnesses have occurred during the last few years. Most of the reported food borne illness outbreaks have occurred from food eaten away from home. ServSafe programs are developed by the National Restaurant Association to address the growing food safety concerns of consumers. In Nebraska, the program is offered by Nebraska Extension.

ServSafe Food Handlers classes are scheduled in three locations in west central Nebraska in March

The training provides information on food safety; personal hygiene; using thermometers; preparation, cooking, serving, receiving, and storing food safely; and cleaning and sanitizing.
