Information on Georgia Food Handler Cards
Georgia foodservice workers are required to obtain a food handlers card within 30 days of employment in any food service or food preparation establishment. This includes restaurants, hotels, cafes, cafeterias and any number of establishments where food is stored, prepared and served. Food handler's cards are granted to applicants who successfully pass a food safety and sanitation examination. Courses for this examination are available online and in classroom settings across the state. Foodservice workers are encouraged to check with their county department of health for more information.
