The practices surrounding the service of this food is different than that of a traditional food service establishment. Non-profit food vendors who participate in non-profit temporary food events (those sponsored by a county, municipality, or a proven non-profit organization) have the opportunity to attend educational trainings in any of our 13 counties and receive a certificate of completion at the end of the training. The certificate will show that they have taken the extra-step to learn more about food safety and protecting the public from food-borne illness. These certificates may be displayed at any non-profit event for up to two years at which time we recommend the vendors return to learn about any changes to the law and gain additional knowledge and skills.” Traducciones en Espanol estarán disponibles. Spanish flyer. PLEASE NOTE: Attendance or completion of this training DOES NOT guarantee selection as a vendor for a City of Perry Event!  The training will be videotaped and uploaded to the City of Perry Special Events page and YouTube channel.
