Food Handler Education Bill

The Texas Food Handler Card Training Program came from a Senate Bill of the 80th Legislature, and concerns the accreditation of food safety basics to be taught to Texas Food Handler Card workers.

The act is meant to provide information and education for food safety education or training programs for food handlers.

The Texas Department of State Health Services, the Texas Food Handler Card Program, along with the the Certified Food Manager Program, promotes the health and safety of the people of the State of Texas by educating and training food service employees in the facts and operation of food safety to produce safe food products for Texas consumers.

State Laws place the food safety of a food institution on the Certified Food Manager of the operation. However, most cities and counties are progressively requiring certified food handling safety training for all staff, and a few require that this certification be registered with them.
