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.
To obtain your food handler card you will come to the Jefferson County Health Department:
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 you to refer to 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 handler slideshow will remain accessible for review.
Notice we are no longer processing food cards on Fridays.
When you come to pick up your food handler card you will need to provide us with your name, the establishment where you are working, and the location.
Example: John Smith, McDonalds located at 123 Red Street Charles Town WV
Remember you will have your picture taken for your food handler card and to have payment ready. The fee for the food card is $10.00
*We will no longer be accepting personal checks for food cards. We will still accept business checks and checks from invoiced establishments. Cash or Credit/Debit only.*
