About School Food Handler

The School Food Hander Professional Standards program is designed specifically for the K-12 food service industry. Our aim is to develop a program that addresses the unique needs of a school food service environment. While at the same time ensuring compliance with the highest food safety standards.

The online training platform developed by School Food Handler aims to help school nutrition departments simply and effectively meet the stringent USDA training requirements. All of our trainings and reporting information is administered and managed by the School Food Handler team by utilizing the power of the internet and cloud technology. This saves a school district time by no longer having to search for trainings and track their staffs progress. Districts also notice a reduction in paper waste through the elimination of printable trainings, attendance logs and training binders to house training materials and staff progress.

School Food Handler’s online training platform provides users with a unique education opportunity. With well-crafted lessons designed and developed by registered dietitians and industry professionals that have over 30 years in school nutrition. Custom websites are created for each school district to provide added privacy and group training opportunities. Our easy to read, real-time reports meet the USDA Professional Standards requirements and are available 24/7/365 with just the click of a button. Our goal at School Food Handler is to help school districts find time and have peace of mind knowing their staff is serving safe, high quality food to today’s youth.
