Orientation/Safe Food Handling/Civil Rights Certification
CAFB is required by Feeding America, IRS and USDA to provide food safety training and Civil rights training to every Partner Agency on an annual basis. During audits, CAFB must provide documentation to the above listed agencies that training requirements are being provided and met. Our documentation is in the form of CAFB class sign-in sheets and certificates of training completion. This is why it is always important that you sign-in at all CAFB classes attended or provide training certificates (via fax or mail) of any approved classes taken elsewhere. This information is included in your file.
In order for Partner Agencies to maintain CAFB partnership compliance, at least one individual from each agency must receive approved food safety and civil rights training annually.
Classes are always on the 4th Monday of the month from 1 - 3:30 p.m. at the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas 8201 South Congress Ave Austin, TX 78745
Please send training certificates to:
