Food Worker Classes

Due to the New Year's holiday, the food worker class for January has been rescheduled for January 8, 2015.

Washington State Food Worker Cards are required for all food service employees. The Food Worker Class covers basic food safety information from the Food Code that every food worker needs to know before working with food that is served to the public.

When and Where

Food worker classes are held in the conference room on the 2nd floor of the Lewis County Public Health Building (360 NW North Street, Chehalis) Tuesday mornings at 9:00 am and the first Thursday of every month at 6:00 pm.

Study guides are available on the third floor of the Public Health Building for $2.00 or on the DOH Website

Initial Food Worker cards are good for two years, while renewals are good for three years. To qualify for a renewal card, you must take the class before your current card expires.

Five year cards are available for those who have taken an approved advanced food safety class such as ServeSafe within the last 2 years. Call (360) 740-1222 for more information.


Replacement copies are available for current card holders who have taken the class in Lewis County. These can be obtained for $3.00 on the 3rd floor at Lewis County Public Health & Social Services.
