    Food Safety Program

    Spokane Regional Health District’s Food Safety Program protects public health by working with the food service industry and our community to prevent foodborne illness. In addition to food worker education and food establishment inspections, the Food Safety Program provides many other services, including investigation of complaints and illnesses associated with food establishments, plan review/pre-occupancy inspections of new or remodeled food establishments, and food safety consultations for permitted establishments. We also partner with community and food service representatives on our Food Advisory Committee, which provides guidance to our program.

    Customers of food or beverage establishments who have a complaint or concern can call 324-1560 x2 or click on "Contact Us."

    The Food Safety Program is staffed by nine environmental health specialists and a technical advisor, in addition to clerical and management support. We permit over 2300 permanent retail food establishments and nearly 200 temporary food establishments each year. We also issue nearly 15,000 food service worker permits annually.
