Food & Lodging

The Food and Lodging program consists of a variety of unannounced facility inspections, including: restaurants, food stands, meat markets, nursing homes and hospitals, school cafeterias, residential care facilities, mobile food units and pushcarts, summer camps, and lodging facilities. Permitting of temporary food stands (food booths for races, carnivals, fairs, etc.) is also done through this program. Environmental Health Specialists work to insure compliance with all sanitation requirements by routine inspections, food handling education, plan review of all new establishments, and complaint investigation. Through food safety education Environmental Health Specialists hope to eliminate food-borne outbreaks within our community.
