Do you or a member of your staff need to become ServSafe Certified?

In Massachusetts, every culinary business needs at least one person with food safety manager certification. We offer classes/exams once a month at Foundation Kitchen at #3 Washington. These are 8-hour days, which include approximately 6 hours of lectures/training (with several short breaks and a 30 minute break for lunch), followed by 2 hours of time allotted for the ServSafe Exam.

Our instructor is Ciaran Nagle, co-founder and owner of Foundation Kitchen, himself a certified trainer for ServSafe. He takes his knowledge of working with dozens of food businesses every week, and applies it to your training, helping to ensure that you get real-world experience– and most importantly, pass your exam! (It also doesn't hurt that Ciaran has toured the world as a member of the Three Irish Tenors, and has years of performance and entertainment background!)

The price of the reservation includes the rental of a ServSafe Manual (required for every person taking the exam,) the course materials (including practice tests,) and the exam itself. 

If you register for the course more than 72 hours in advance, we will send the book to you so you can study. Please keep in mind that the book needs to be returned in the same condition you received it– only use pencil if you use the practice exams in the book! (Or better yet, write on a separate piece of paper!)

If you receive the book in advance to study, remember to bring it to the course with you!


There are not many options in the area for lunch, so the price of the reservation includes a light lunch from one of our amazing Foundation Kitchen members. 

Please specify if you have any food allergies or restrictions in the "comments" section of the reservation!


We have limited parking available in our lot on the days of these exams, however there is ample street parking in the area. You can also take the Orange line to Sullivan Square or any of the many buses that pass us on Washington Street (#86, 88, 89, 91, CT2, etc).


We can schedule ServSafe courses at your business or as a private session at Foundation Kitchen.  Contact us for more information and for a price quote for this.
