Serve Safe Class November 3rd, 4th and 10th at Edco Collaborative, Bedford, MA
The Spirit of Adventure Council is pleased to announce that it will be offering The National Restaurant Associations ServeSafe® Food Protection Manager Certification Course. As Scout leaders we often find ourselves in situations where food is being served to our members or to the public. Any time we go camping, man a fundraising booth at a civic event, host a Blue and Gold dinner or a Troop Court of Honor, we can find ourselves in a situation where a good basic knowledge of food handling, food safety and sanitation is required. Additionally, any organization in the state of Massachusetts selling food is required to have someone with a Serve Safe certification present. This course will fill all those needs.
