City Sponsored Virtual Servsafe Food Handler Class / Successful

The Center for faith-based and community learning located in Charlottesville, Virginia and 
Chef Ralph Brown Sr successfully coordinated a Virtual Servsafe Food Handler Class last week
on behalf of the City of Charlottesville. Half of the students who completed this class are now ready
to move on to the next level and take the Servsafe Manager Food Safety Class. The Servsafe Manager  course is required to own and / operate a food truck or restaurant in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

This was a great experience for the students, kind of like getting an associates degree before going
on to a four year bachelors degree. It prepared them in a very real way for what is to come in both the Servsafe Manager Class and in their own future businesses. 

Thank you to the Charlottesville Office
of Economic Development for the opportunity to serve our often disadvantaged and / or Minority 
community citizens.

For more information about our classes please email or call 434-242-9984, don't
wait, call now!
