Food Program

Our Role
The role of Eastern Idaho Public Health's Food Program is to help food stablishments provide safe food for the public. Today's consumers expect clean, wholesome, and safe food from all food establishments. An effective food program needs to complement and support the operator's efforts to provide these amenities to the public.

The Food program at EIPH focus on assuring that all foods served to the public are safe from source to service, including all steps and processes in between in accordance with the Idaho Food Code.

This is accomplished by inspection of food establishments, ensuring food supervisors have necessary training, and answering food related questions. Each food establishment which serves or sells potentially hazardous food must be licensed prior to opening.


Food Safety Training
Due to the availability of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare's online Food Safety Exam, classes are no longer being held at EIPH offices. However, if a hardship exists and you cannot partake of the online exam you can contact 208-334-5938 for an alternative solution.

Food safety training courses and the Idaho Food Safety Exam may be accessed at:

Idaho Department of Health and Welfare's Food Protection Program
