Welcome to the Food Safety Section

The Food Safety Program ensures that commercially prepared food is safe to consume. Environmental Health Specialists review plans for new establishments and ensure compliance with the food code. They inspect restaurants, retail food stores, food warehouses, food processors, institutional food services and county correctional facilities. Staff members investigate public complaints on food establishments and reports of possible foodborne illness.

All employees of food establishments permitted by the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department must have LLCHD issued food handler/manager permits. The Food Safety Program provides food handler/manager education and permitting.
