Our mission is to help to ensure that food offered to consumers is safe, unadulterated, and honestly presented. The Environmental Health Division establishes rules/definitions; sets standards for management, personnel, food operations, equipment and facilities. We also provide the food establishments with a plan review, permit issuance, inspection, employee restriction, and permit suspension to safeguard public health.
Food Handler | Training
All food handlers must obtain a permit from a local health department before they are allowed to handle food which will be served to the public. In order to receive the permit from the local health department, a food handler applicant must take a course offered by an approved food handler training provider, pass the exam, and receive a certificate from the training provider that they have taken the course and successfully passed the exam. We will not issue a food handler permit without receiving documentation of this certificate.
