All food employees in Spokane County who handle unwrapped foods or beverages are required to hold a current Washington State Food Worker Card (WAC 246-217). Food worker cards are $10.00.
To obtain a card, you must take a course and successfully complete a test covering the course material.
Your first food worker card is valid for 2 years. Before the card expires, you must take the food safety training class and pass the exam again. If your current food worker card has NOT expired, then you may qualify for a 3-year card.
You can receive a 5-year renewal food worker card, if you have a current card and can show that you have had "additional food safety training" within the past 2 years.
