A TAKE OUT HUNGER CERTIFICATE- A VALUABLE SIGN OF ACCOMPLISHMENT
If you come into contact with food during preparation, cooking, serving, or cleaning, this training will be valuable for the charity you volunteer with.
HOW IS A TAKE OUT HUNGER COURSE CERTIFICATE USED?
Holding a Take Out Hunger Training Certificate shows food pantries that you have passed the minimum requirement of understanding food safety as established within Harris County, Texas. Employers can check your certificate status through our online system.
You may not say or imply that you are "certified," "certificated," "licensed," "registered" or "accredited"; these terms indicate a different type of program than food handler training.
