Food Handling

Food Hygiene Level 2

This government recognised certificate is essential for anyone working regularly in one of our kitchens. Volunteers who do not have this certificate are only legally permitted to perform tasks such as veg prep or packing, and only then under the supervision of someone who is certified. Ideally a volunteer will have earned this certificate within a week of starting with us. We will of course make exceptions in the current circumstances where volunteers do not have a lot of time, but it is expected that every regular volunteer should be certified.

If you already have this certificate, please can you send a digital copy to us at for our records.

If not, you can register here for an online course at Eversley Training. Simply give us your username and email address, and we will get back to you with details of how to access the course, read the material and take the test.

This is not a test of academic ability, and anyone with a standard secondary school education even without GCSEs will be able to succeed with it provided they have read the material carefully. The whole course plus the test takes most people less than the 2 hours suggested time to complete.
