Food Safety

People often take the safety of their food and water for granted. GCHD inspects all county restaurants, taverns, grocery stores, motels, school cafeterias, licensed daycares, and senior citizen centers. The Health Department also monitors food safety for the North Central Missouri Fair and Missouri Days. We test water samples from private wells and investigate private sewage complaints.

Restaurant Inspection reports are available upon request.

Temporary Food Service

Restaurants, grocery stores, convenience stores, and other businesses that sell food to the public follow strict guidelines to insure the food you purchase is safe to eat. Although temporary food events like community fundraisers are not inspected by the health department, they must follow food safety guidelines.

If your organization is planning a fish fry, chili supper, or spaghetti dinner, please contact the health department to learn how to make your event a safe one.
