DPAC is hosting a FoodSafe course for PAC volunteers (people who volunteer in our public schools) on Saturday, May 26, at the Van Bien Training and Development Centre. A book and certificate will be provided for each participant.
As a reminder, when FoodSafe added expiry dates for FoodSafe certification, people who held FoodSafe at that time were grandfathered in – but those FoodSafe certificates expire in 2018.
What does Foodsafe do?
- protects public health
- prepare for employment as a Care Provider or in the food industry
- to volunteer as a food handler
- protect your businesses from litigation or embarrassment
As a reminder, for school food programs and PAC fundraising where food is involved, at least one on-site parent is required to have valid FoodSafe certification.
Class runs from 8:30a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
COST: $25 (to cover the book and certificate cost – DPAC is funding the course itself)
Lunch break is from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.
DPAC will be providing lunch and snacks.
FoodSafe is a B.C. Ministry of Health required program for people working in the food service industry. Graduates are registered with the B.C. Ministry of Health and will receive a FoodSafe certificate.
You need to bring your CareCard number to the class.
