Environmental health training at Greener Kirkcaldy
Greener Kirkcaldy offers qualifications in Elementary Food Hygiene, Allergy Awareness and Elementary Cooking Skills. All of our courses are certified by the Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS).
The courses are all useful for individuals who need qualifications for their work. These qualifications are also necessary for community groups who run food-based activities. These include cafes, community meals, community fridges and pantries, support groups and warm spaces.
Staff and volunteers working on these activities need to receive food hygiene training. This is especially important if you’re starting a new project. It is also vital for everyone handling food, sharing surplus food and working with vulnerable people.
It is also necessary to understand Natasha’s Law. This means listing allergens to give customers more information about any food they are taking away as well as gaining awareness about allergies in general.
Who we’ve worked with
We’ve provided training for volunteers and staff who run our community meal, cooking classes and Lang Toun Larder.
We’ve also worked with a range of community organisations. These include parents at Fair Isle Primary who run their community space and volunteers from food banks and new warm spaces in Fife. We’ve also trained church groups, catering staff and food bank volunteers.
Greener Kirkcaldy runs REHIS courses as a social enterprise. We reinvest any profits into our work to support our community. Discounts are available for community and third sector groups.
