Columbia County Food Handlers

Anyone whose job covers handling food, beverages or utensils are required to obtain a food handler’s card. While a food handler’s card in Oregon allows you to work in any county, you are advised to check with the country health department for additional information. Please see below for Columbia County contact information. Columbia County has a population of 49,000 and is named after the Columbia river which surrounds the county around its easter and northern borders.

In addition to issue food handler’s card, Columbia County Environmental Health regulates and issues licenses for restaurants including temporary food establishments. To work in Columbia County as a food worker, you must provide proof of a valid food handler permit issued by any county in the state of Oregon. The card is also called a Food Worker Card in Oregon.
