Certified Food Safe Course, Gordon House, July 29 (Fri)

Gordon Neighbourhood House is coordinating a Certified Food Safe Course on Friday July 29th from 8:30am until about 4pm (end time depends a bit on the time taken to finish the test).

The facilitator is geared towards community work (community kitchens etc.), and the course would be a great option for staff and volunteers who deal with food in any situation.

Gordon House is subsidizing a part of the cost of the course a bit, so  it will be on a sliding scale between $20 and $50, depending on ability to pay.

For questions or sign up, please contact Stephanie Shulhan, Community Programmer, Gordon Neighbourhood House. Tel: 604-683-2554 ext. 205
