AVON PARK - Ridge Area Arc will offer a SafeStaff Foodhandler Certificate program to the public from 1-5 p.m. Monday, March 6, at Ridge Area Arc’s main campus.

Anyone in the food service industry or those who are interested in working in the field and want to obtain a certificate can enroll in this class being taught by a Certified Professional Food Manager. Florida law requires that all food service employees be trained in an approved food safety program. A public food service establishment has 60 days from the date of hire to train their employees with a Florida approved food safety training program. This includes all employees responsible for food storage, preparation, display or any service of food and beverages. It is recommended that even volunteer organizations (churches, clubs and other non-profits) serving food should have their food workers trained in a food safety program.
