Food Program

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

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

This is accomplished by inspections of food establishments, verifying food managers and supervisors have necessary training, and answering food related questions. Each food establishment which serves or sells food that requires time or temperature control for safety (TCS foods) must be licensed prior to opening.

Food Safety Training

Due to the increased number of enforcement actions taken from the lack of having an accredited food protection manager [Idaho Food Code (Section 2-102.12)], Eastern Idaho Public Health is now mandating that this requirement be met (via proof of certificate of completion from a nationally accredited food safety examination) prior to conducting a pre-opening inspection of a food establishment.
