Food permits needed
The Morgan County Health Department has become aware of many businesses in the area that sponsor events in which food is prepared and served to the general public. We would like to make them aware that any event in which potentially hazardous food is prepared or served to the public must be permitted by the local health department.
The fee for a temporary food permit is $50, but if a group is legally recognized as a non-profit entity and can provide proof of that status, the fee is waived.
In addition, any person who helps prepare or handles any food item must have a Food Service Worker’s Permit (SF-22) issued by the Health Department.
Potentially hazardous food items include, but
may not be limited to, any food that can spoil under improper cooking or holding times and temperatures.
If there is any question as to food items and food
permits, they can be addressed to Brian Carter at
304-258-1513, ext. 19.
All permitted food vendors are subject to inspection by a sanitarian of the Health Department, and can have the permit revoked if health standards are not met.
The Morgan County Health Department wishes to make sure that we all do our best to provide for safe food preparation for all of our residents and visitors.
