Obtaining Your Food Handlers Card
To obtain your Food Handler Card you will come to the Jefferson County Health Department on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday between the hours of 9am-11am and 1pm-3:30pm.
You will be given a Food Handler Training Booklet with your Food Handler Card for reference as needed.
Jefferson County Health Department will no longer require the food handler test or a TB risk assessment form before obtaining a Food Handler Card.
The Food Safety Slideshow is very helpful for review.
When you come to pick up your food handler card you will have your picture taken and must provide:
- Your name
- Establishment and location where you are working (Example: McDonalds at 123 Red Street Charles Town WV)
- Payment (Card fee $10.00- No personal checks – Cash or Credit/Debit only. Business checks and checks from invoiced establishments are accepted.)
Our mission in the food safety program of the Jefferson County Health Department is to ensure food is handled safely for all populations. This is accomplished by inspecting food facilities, whether temporary or permanent, and educating food handlers.
