Jackson County Health Department offers a number of Food Safety Classes to food service employees and community volunteers.

Food Handler Cards are required by the Jackson County Board of Health. Anyone working with food prep, serving, or cooking is required to have a food handler card. As of July 1, 2013 food handler cards are good for one year only. There is a $5.00 fee payable with cash at the time you attend class. The Jackson County Health Department accepts food handler cards from other West Virginia Health Departments but does not accept cards obtained through online food handler classes or cards from other states.

In-County food handler cards will be $5.00 (In-County card is valid in Jackson County, WV only); a Statewide food handler card will be $15 and good throughout the State of West Virginia. An additional option is the online food handler course with StateFoodSafety.com.  To take the In-County class for $15 click here.  The Statewide card costing $25 click here. Cards will be valid for one year from date of certification. Any questions can be directed to Jackson County Health Department-Environmental Section at 304-372-2634.
