Information on Delaware Food Handler Cards
Any food service workers in the state of Delaware who are preparing, handling or serving food in cafes, restaurants, cafeterias or industrial or commercial facilities must obtain a food handler's certification. In order to obtain your food handler's card, all foodservice workers should receive training in food safety, preparation and sanitation available from sources throughout the state including Dine Safe, state and county departments of health and a number of private agencies. Many agencies provide food safety and sanitation courses online and in classroom settings.
Although not always necessary, a food service course can provide a good amount of knowledge about food safety practices that will benefit foodservice workers throughout their careers. The information required to pass an examination and receive a current food handler's certificate is beneficial for foodservice workers throughout North America, even if the specific foodservice certification is not. In Delaware, many food handlers' cards are available through county and municipal health departments.
