Food Service Worker Card
Food Service Worker Cards are required for any person who handles, prepares, serves, sells or gives away food
for human consumption, including those whose duties are restricted to busing or washing dishes. The rule does not apply to workers
in facilities that handle food or beverages exclusively in a closed package or container. New workers must obtain their licenses
within 30 days.
Two ways to get your Food Service Worker Card:
- You can visit one of our Regional Office to the computerized test with State Food Safety.
(Click here for Testing locations and Hours of operations). You will need to bring with you to test:
- You can also visit State Food Safety to take the test online.
Once you have passed the online test, you must bring all of the following to our regional office for issuance of a card:
- State Food Safety Certificate of Completion.
- Proof of Legal Status/ID
- $8.00 fee for Test
- $5.00 fee for card (optional $3.00 for each duplicate or card)
The Food Service Worker Card is valid for a period of three years from the time you passed the test. Re-testing
is required after the card has expired. The fee to take the test is $8.00 in office or online. When the test is passed, the fee
for the card is $5.00. An original of the card must be kept at the workplace. Those who plan to work at multiple job locations
or wish to retain a copy for their own records can request a duplicate of their card for $3.00. If you have misplaced, lost
your card or need a replacement card at any time during the 3 year expiration period, please visit one of our regional
office IN PERSON with your Valid ID. We can only issue cards
in person and to the person the card is issued to. We accept cash and credit cards at our five locations.

needs. Please visit the State Food Safety website for more information. If you have any further question please contact the
