The food program conducts routine and follow-up inspections, investigates complaints and suspected foodborne illnesses, carries-out food recalls, conducts multi-lingual food safety classes, conducts plan reviews for new and remodeled facilities, and issues permits.

We also offer food safety certification classes in English or in Spanish to assist food operators and managers in complying with the statewide legislation requirement for Food Safety Certification.
