The current version of Iowa’s food code requires every food service establishment to have a certified food protection manager on staff. ServSafe is a one day food safety and sanitation certification class which fulfills the requirement. Classes are available across the state via the Iowa Restaurant Association and ISU Extension Offices. The Iowa Restaurant Association leads the way in providing superior food safety and responsible alcohol service training, as well as career advancement and school-to-career opportunities. IRA members receive discounted pricing and additional benefits on a range of educational programs.
