Food Safety Program

We are happy to announce that after a year with little to no classes due to CDC recommendations concerning the Coronavirus, the County of Bergen Food Handler as well as the 6 session Food Manager classes have resumed virtually. All participants must have access to a laptop, smartphone or tablet with a webcam and working speakers to participate in these classes. The final session of the 6 session Food Manager Program is a mandatory in person test.
