Food Safety Training

Below is a link to our required Food Safety Training. Feel free to share this with your organization’s volunteers and staff. This training is accessible all year.

We always notify agencies when their Food Safety certificate expires every two years. When that time comes, partner agencies in need of a new certificate will be emailed a notification. Once you successfully complete the training, you will be issued a new food safety certificate. Place it along with your other required signage; you may discard the older version.

USDA Training

    Wellness Pantry

    A Wellness Pantry is a place that supports the health and well-being of the neighbors we serve. Lowcountry Food Bank provides partner pantries with training on how to set up their client choice pantry, signage to encourage clients to select a variety of healthy foods and resources to educate food-insecure neighbors on how to utilize food items. Become a Wellness Pantry partner by applying at select times of the year.
