Food & Nutrition Services considers food safety a top priority. All food service employees are asked to complete a 10-hour food safety and sanitation course during their first year of employment, and a 4-hour refresher course once every three years. Although it is not a requirement for school food service managers to obtain a national-level food safety manager certification, Pasco County FNS is proud to announce that all of our school food service managers and many of our assistant managers and employees have taken this initiative to obtain their National ServSafe Certification.
As a part of our Total Quality Management program, all schools are reviewed annually for six key indicators:
- General School Food Service
- Food Safety & Sanitation
- Cooking Principles
- Nutrition Education
In addition, our school kitchens are inspected three to four times a year by the Pasco County Health Department and strict Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points are used to ensure the best possible food safety compliance.
