The Limited Certified Food Manager's Card can be used in some jurisdictions by establishments which serve exclusively pre-packaged food, or do not prepare or handle TCS food. Its limited scope makes it ideal for convenience stores, coffee shops, ice cream parlors, and other businesses which do not prepare or handle potentially hazardous food products. Contact your local Health Department to determine if you qualify for the Limited program.
