Food Handler Class - Click here for the additional Summer classes
To help with social distancing efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, we are suspending our food handler card and pool school classes until further notice. Employees without cards will not be required to get one before classes resume. We are working on an on-line food handler course to fill the need, but it is not yet in place. Pool school will be rescheduled. We will announce when classes resume.
The cities of Norman and Moore require food handler cards for anyone handling food.
