N.C. Cooperative Extension in Brunswick County is offering the NC Safe Plates course to promote food safety at the food service level. Food safety is the safeguarding or protection of food from anything that could harm consumers’ health. This comprehensive course is appropriate for food service managers and supervisory staff in restaurants, hospitals, nursing homes, childcare
facilities, and other food-handling establishments.

The classes will be on October 23 9 a.m. till 4 p.m. and on October 30 from 9 a.m. till 2 p.m. The classes will be held at the 2nd floor meeting room of the David Sandifer Building, 30 Government Center Drive at the Government Complex in Bolivia. This two-day training is recommended for those who are new to food service or have not taken a certification exam before. It is recommended, but not required, that participants attend both days. The Food Safety Manager Certification Exam will be given at 2:30 p.m. on October 30. The registration fee is $125 per person. This includes all instruction, materials and the exam. Participants are encouraged to bring their own snacks and beverages.

NC Safe Plates is a new food safety certification course developed by North Carolina State University. Safe Plates for Food Managers is different than other food safety manager training because it is taught through case studies, storytelling, activities and discussion. This class is interactive and encourages participants to engage with the material. Safe Plates for Food Safety Managers training is also available virtually from N.C. Cooperative Extension and NC State University.

Food service managers successfully completing the exam will meet the 2023 FDA Food Code requirement for an ANSI (American National Standards Institution) approved Certified Food Protection Manager. Managers will receive a certificate to display in their operation which will verify to the local Environmental Health Department that they are in compliance. A certified person in charge (PIC) should be present at all times the establishment is in operation.

Instructors for the class will be Cheryle Jones Syracuse and Avery Ashley, both are Family and Consumer Science Team Members with N.C. Cooperative Extension in Brunswick County. Staff members from the Brunswick County Environmental Health will also be on-hand to answer questions.

The class will be taught in English and the book and handout materials are available in English only. The Food Safety Manager Certification test is available in English, Traditional Chinese, Vietnamese and Spanish.
