The training has been developed for those participating in Farmer’s Markets, retail grocery sales and restaurant/fast food services. It will cover basic food safety considerations and include guidance specifically related to the current Corona Virus situation. While Wyoming does not require that individuals in the food sector have Food Handlers Certificates, many in the sector feel that the training is of significant benefit. Those completing the training are encouraged to display their certificates at their point of sale as an effort to help sellers achieve a higher level of customer confidence that the food they purchased is safe, sanitary and handled by individuals who care and are trained in proper food handling.
