Update on Food Worker Training

Food worker classes at all of our office locations (Prescott- 1090 Commerce Drive; Prescott Valley- 3212 N. Windsong Drive; and Cottonwood- 10 S. 6th Street) have been canceled until further notice. On-site food worker classes can be offered for a minimum of eight (8) paying trainees, as long as the establishment can provide adequate space for physical distancing.
