The North Dakota State University Extension Service is holding a two-part Food Protection Manager Certification class Nov. 8 and 15.

The course is for food safety and kitchen managers, supervisors and anyone else who is responsible for serving safe food to the public.

Garden-Robinson, who teaches the course, will use the ServSafe curriculum from the National Restaurant Association’s Educational Foundation. She is a certified ServSafe instructor.

The class is designed to assist food establishments develop a food safety plan or update their plan with current information.
