Food Safety

Public Health officials recommend social distancing when possible to slow the COVID-19 global pandemic. All in-person Oneida Food Handler’s Courses will be temporarily cancelled effective March 12, 2020 through June 12, 2020. EHS will assess reconvening in-person courses after this time.

EHS staff is currently working to develop an online option for all community members who wish to or need to take Oneida Food Handler’s certification and re-certification courses. We anticipate having this option finalized and ready for use very soon and will communicate availability as soon as it is complete. 

Please contact Vanessa Miller, Sanitarian, at 920-869-4553 or [email protected] with any questions.


The Oneida Food Service Code requires all individuals who wish to sell food at any Nation event or in nation owned buildings to complete a food safety course. Our aim is to educate our food providers and have only the safest food products served in our community.

Hunter Safety

The Hunter Safety class instills in students the knowledge and skill to be a responsible and safe hunter. Students learn how hunting accidents are caused and how they can be prevented. Hunter responsibility and safety are stressed throughout the class. We strive to ensure this safety course helps you become a more knowledgeable and ethical hunter. Educated hunters play an important role in Oneida.  All hunters who were born on or after January 1, 1973, must complete hunter education certification in order to be eligible for an Oneida Sportsman License. 

There will be two Hunters Safety courses offered by the Oneida Conservation Department in 2018. Please register as soon as possible to ensure a spot in the class.  

Registration is now full for both classes.  Please see for other local hunter safety courses available.
