Information on Iowa Food Handler Cards

The state of Iowa does not require food service workers to hold a statewide food handler's card. All foodservice workers including those involved in food storage, processing, and service should check with their local county department of health to find out what is required in their area. Many counties require foodservice workers to attend a food safety and sanitation course, after which they are eligible to receive their food handler's certification.

Below, Culinary World has listed a number of resources for perspective Iowa foodservice workers to contact to find out more about foodservice training and certification in their area. Make sure you have the information about the certification you need to work in the job you have chosen. If there is any doubt, contact the Iowa State Department of Health at the number below.
