Food Handler Training

    A new mandatory Food Handler Certification  is now required for your job with Nutrition Services. A law has been passed by the Texas Department of State and Health Services and the City of Houston that mandates Nutrition Services employees to obtain a valid Food Handler Certification in order to work with unpackaged food, food-contact surfaces, food equipment and utensils to maintain food safety.


    Serving safe food is a critical responsibility for HISD Nutrition Services and its employees. Therefore, we are asking you to complete the Food Handler Certification at no cost to you and from the convenience of your home. 

    View the linked documents on the right-hand side of this page to learn how to access and prepare for the training.


    Please note: If you take the training in Spanish, the password is nutrition.


    If you have any questions, please call Nutrition Services at 713-491-5700.
