County hosts Pub­lic Health In­spec­tor in­for­ma­tion ses­sion

The McLeod River Post - - Family, Farm & Garden -

This is your chance to ask Pub­lic Health in­spec­tors any­thing and ev­ery­thing about serv­ing and pre­par­ing food for the pub­lic.

Yel­low­head County Fam­ily and Com­mu­nity Sup­port Ser­vices (FCSS) will be host­ing two in­for­ma­tion ses­sions with the lo­cal Pub­lic Health In­spec­tors; one in Marl­boro, one in Mackay; this Oc­to­ber. Do you know when, or if, you need to get a per­mit for your event that is serv­ing food? Do you know if you re­quire the Safe Food Han­dling course for your ac­tiv­i­ties?

The Pub­lic Health In­spec­tor will be able to clar­ify the rules and reg­u­la­tions re­lat­ing to serv­ing food at a pub­lic gath­er­ing, per­mits that may, or may not, be nec­es­sary, and clar­ify any mis­in­for­ma­tion that may be cir­cu­lat­ing about serv­ing/of­fer­ing food to the pub­lic. This in­for­ma­tion ses­sion is geared to­wards peo­ple that are work­ing with com­mu­nity groups or mar­kets, and non-prof­its serv­ing/ sell­ing food in a pub­lic set­ting. It will also in­clude a Q&A ses­sion for any unan­swered ques­tions, and pam­phlets and in­for­ma­tion will be made avail­able re­gard­ing rules, reg­u­la­tions and per­mits.

The ses­sions run on the fol­low­ing days:

Mackay Com­mu­nity Hall, 7:30-8:30 + Q&A, Oc­to­ber 10.

Marl­boro Com­mu­nity Hall, 7:308:30 + Q&A, Oc­to­ber 19.
