- Food Safety
Everyone who handles food, whether at home for you and your family or at work for hungry customers, must take care to ensure food is handled and prepared safely. Food Safety is everyone’s responsibility, we are working with the community to ensure food is being handled properly.
If you have a restaurant complaint, please fill out our Facility Complaint Form.
