The CPHS Health Agents ensure food safety through inspections of:
- Temporary food establishments like trucks and fair food vendors
- Home Kitchens
- Bed and Breakfast Establishments
- Farmers Market vendors who are selling anything other than whole, uncut fresh fruits and vegetables and eggs
Health Agents inspect food establishments to make sure they are clean and are following guidance on how to keep food the correct temperature, and how to prevent contamination. To guide this work, the CPHS Oversight Board and each member Board of Health has adopted a food inspection policy.
Staff also hold Food Safety Certification trainings a few times a year (ServSafe, Choke Saver, and Food First Aid) to support our local workforce. Contact any of the agents to be put on a waiting list.
