Temporary Food Permit

Temporary food permits are required to sell or give away food to the public. Permits are required for any group or individual who wishes to serve food at a temporary event. To avoid a late fee get your permit at least one week prior to the event.

Food Safety Guide

Food Establishment Permits

Any person, establishment, or business serving food to the public must be permitted. Before applying for a permit there are three basic questions that need to be answered.
• What type of food, or how many types of food will be prepared and served?
• Where will service take place?
• As only special events like celebrations or fairs, from a permanent building, or from a mobile establishment that operates on a regular basis?

In addition to the permit for the establishment, it may be required that each person at an establishment get food safety training. Each person at a permanently permitted establishment must have a Food Handler’s Permit. At least one person at each permanently permitted establishment must have a Food Safety Manager Certification.

New Establishment and Information Packet: All permanently permitted facilities must complete this packet. This includes everything from a brand new building to snow cone shacks to all mobile establishments. This packet includes information on plan review submissions, applications, and food handler and food safety manager classes.

Mobile Food Guideline: All mobile establishments must conform to these requirements in addition to what in included in the New Establishment and Information Packet.
