All workers handling food must have a food handler card that is issued by the County of Riverside Department of Environmental Health (DOEH). Additionally, all food businesses must have a minimum of one employee who has a ServSafe® Manager’s Certification. This certification is required by the DOEH and it is advisable that multiple employees have this certification. In California, certifications are good for three years.
