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 learn about proper food safety, just review the slideshow below. To receive your food handler’s card complete the questionnaire below and click submit. *You must complete the entire questionnaire. Please be sure to include your full name as well as the name of the workplace, school, or volunteer organization for which you need the food handler’s card at the beginning of the questionnaire. Tests that we receive without a name will be discarded.
Once you complete the questionnaire, you will receive an email in 24 to 48 hours with your results and the times you may come to the health department to pick up your card. Because a picture is required on the food handler’s card you will need to pick it up in person. Cards are valid for one year; you must renew every year. There is a $10 fee for your food handler’s card and a $5 replacement fee for a lost or damaged card.
Below are the listed times that you will only be able to pick up your food card and complete your TB Risk Assessment Form: Times may vary on holidays
Mondays 9 am — 11 am
Tuesdays 1 pm — 3 pm
Fridays 9 am — 11 am & 1 pm — 3 pm
Jefferson County Health Department will no longer be requiring a Tuberculosis Skin Test (PPD) in order to obtain a Food Handlers Card.
