Food Handler Training for our Council
Fish Fries, Pancake Breakfasts, Fellowship Sondays, Fundraising Activities
As knights, one of the ways we serve the Church is by serving food to our fellow parishioners. When serving food, we should use the same safe practices as fine dining restaurants do. To that end, all knights and helpers handling unpackaged foods including fish, pancakes, hot dogs and hamburgers etc. are required to have a State of Texas Food Handler certificate. The certificate is good for 3 years. If you are a food handler in the Mercy Ministry, the food handler certificate is also required.
|What:||Texas Food Handler Certificate|
|Cost of training, exam and certificate:||$ 7|

The on-line training takes about 2 hours, but you can pace yourself and start and stop as needed. You must get a minimum score of 70 on the exam but you can retake it until you pass. After you get your certificate, please forward a copy to Tony Pickett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The goal for Council 8482 is to have all knights certified as food handlers so that after COVID-19 is under control, we can start serving food again.
We will also need Certified Food Managers to be present anytime there is a food event. This certificate is $35 and requires separate training. If you are interested in getting the food manager certificate, please contact Tony Pickett at 281-782-2634 to obtain training materials.
