Certified Food Protection Manager
Beginning in March 2023, food establishments must have access to a person who is a certified food protection manager (CFPM). Only one staff member needs to have this certification. The CFPM does not need to be on site at all times, but a copy of the valid certificate must be available. The CFPM must make sure the persons in charge are trained and able to control food safety in the establishment. There are six American National Standards Institute (ANSI) ‐accredited certification providers you can chose from. Click here for more information.
If you have lost your Food Worker card, come to our office to get a new card. If your card is on record and has not expired, you will be issued a new card. There is an $10 fee for replacement cards. This card will have the same expiration date as the original card.
