ServSafe Course and Exam

Michigan Fitness Foundation requires all SNAP-Ed Partners implementing food tastings or cooking demonstrations be supervised by a designated staff member who has obtained the ServSafe® Food Manager Certification. The ServSafe® certified staff must ensure those who are conducting food tastings or cooking demonstrations are implementing activities in a way that meets all food safety standards.

ServSafe® is the National Restaurant Association’s certification for handling and serving food safely. The ServSafe® Manager Training and Course Book will help you understand the food safety risks you may encounter when working with food during cooking lessons and food tastings. It will provide you with the knowledge, skills and ability you need to manage food distribution to meet the highest safety standards. The training includes a refresher on the key ServSafe® components and the opportunity to review before the ServSafe® certification examination is administered. Self-study before the training is strongly recommended.
