Reminder issued on food permits

KINGSFORD  –In accordance with Michigan’s Food Law of 2000, a temporary food permit is required for all food service events serving potentially hazardous food products.

Food service event means an operation which prepares, serves or otherwise provides food for human consumption. A temporary food permit is required whether or not there is a charge for the food.

An application can be obtained at the Dickinson-Iron District Health Department or online at www.didhd.org. The application must be submitted 30 days prior to the scheduled event.

The department’s main goal in this process is an attempt to ensure the health and safety of those individuals consuming food at public events.
