Our food protection program includes permitting of food establishments, education, complaint investigation, inspection, emergency response and food establishment plan review. Johnson County, Missouri adopted a food ordinance in July 2010. The purpose of having a county food ordinance is to allow local public health authority, through permitting, to act on imminent health hazards, collect information, educate persons about food safety, support the proper design of food establishments and encourage compliance with the Missouri Food Code.
We offer a range of resources to educate the public on current practices and requirements. Click HERE to see the schedule for upcoming Food Safety Classes offered at Johnson County Community Health Services and for information about other food safety training available.
