Food Hygiene Facilities Program
Sanitary inspections are routinely conducted at school cafeterias, fraternal organizations, lounges, health care institutions and theaters. The purpose of these inspections is to prevent the spread of foodborne disease and illness.
The Department of Health works with food service establishments as defined by s. 381.0072, Florida Statute to help ensure their products are not a source of foodborne illness. Generally this includes food service operations located in institutional settings (such as schools, assisted living facilities, detention facilities, adult day cares, etc.), civic and fraternal organizations, bars and lounges that don't prepare foods, and theaters that limit their food service to items customarily served at theaters (such as beverages, popcorn, hot dogs and nachos).
