Do you own a restaurant or work in the food service industry?

Indiana law requires that each food service establishment have one certified food handler on staff and this food handler is responsible for all periods of the food establishment’s operation.  

To help local food service establishments meet this requirement, Purdue Extension Kosciusko County offers ServSafe® classes and exams. The ServSafe® program provides food safety training, exams and educational materials to foodservice managers. Students can earn the ServSafe® Food Protection Manager Certification accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)- Conference for Food Protection (CFP). This program blends the latest FDA Food Code, food safety research and years of food sanitation training experience. Managers learn to implement essential food safety practices and create a culture of food safety.  

All content and materials are based on actual job tasks identified by foodservice industry experts, and this program meets Indiana requirements for food handler certification.

Purdue Extension Kosciusko County will host a one-day ServSafe® Food Manager Class & Examination on May 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. This class will be held at the Kosciusko County Justice Building, 121 N. Lake St., Warsaw.  

Cost for the full class, exam and textbook is $165, if registered before April 22 and additional options, including exam only, are available. Visit the website at (link is case sensitive) for registration, cost information and additional dates.
