Food Protection

​​Food Protection

The Health Department offers many services to help owners and operators of food facilities to follow state regulations and ensure that the food they serve is safe. About 48 million people in the U.S. (1 in 6) get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die each year from foodborne diseases (CDC). Federal and state laws for food preparation, storage, and serving help reduce the risk of getting sick from food.
