Food Handler Classes

On September 18, 2018 the City Council voted to repeal the ordinance requiring food handler cards in Wichita. There is currently no citywide or statewide requirement for food handlers cards. However, please check with your employer or volunteer organization to find out if they have a training requirement.

The City of Wichita has developed a free online food safety course for volunteers. Anyone can take this course. Some organizations may require this course. This course may not be valid in other cities or or states.
