Food Handlers Certification

You have an opportunity to contribute to the McLennan County Hunger Coalition’s Food Rescue Efforts and all it takes to get started, and begin this process is to take a basic food handler’s course for food handling certification. This course only costs $20 (and the coalition is willing to pay half the cost on a needs basis evaluation).

This course is available to take every week on the following dates and times:

Monday mornings from 10 A.M. to 12 P.M.

Wednesday afternoons from 3 P.M. to 5 P.M.

Wednesday evenings from 6 P.M. to 8 P.M.

Thursday afternoons from 3 P.M. to 5 P.M.

The course is held at the following location:

Waco-McLennan County Public Health District

225 W. Waco Drive | Waco, Texas 76707

Please visit for directions.

Arrangements to take this course should be made at least one day in advance by calling 254-750-5464. The course will only take 2 hours to complete, and there is no testing after completion.

Please call us at 254-753-3545 or e-mail for more information on this opportunity and to arrange future food rescue efforts with the coalition following your certification.
