Call to Schedule
         Food Safety 
       Education Class

This FREE food safety class can be provided either at the County Building or your restaurant or food service establishment.  This is a basic class that discusses the ways to help prevent food borne illness and is geared towards service staff, dishwashers, kitchen help and management.  This is not a certified class and will not meet the requirements for a Certified Food Handler, but it will give staff a working knowledge of the reasons behind some of the Food Code regulations.
 
Contact Jennifer Heller Rugenstein, EHS at the Brown County Health Department to set up a time and location for presentations.  (812) 988-2255
