Food Protection Program
Promoting healthy people and healthy communities through education and regulation of food service establishments.
In Seattle and King County, there are about 11,000 "permitted" permanent food establishments, including restaurants, food and espresso carts, coffee shops, delis and the fresh food sections of grocery stores. Each of these establishments has owners, managers and employees who have passed a test on handling food safely and received a food worker card. In addition, Health and Environmental Investigators inspect establishments several times each year and, if requested, offer an educational session for staff.
Attend a stakeholder meeting
The Food Program's stakeholder meetings are held throughout King County on a quarterly basis. The meetings are open to all King County residents and generally include the participation of people involved in the food industry, community based organizations, and residents.
