A temporary food service permit is required for outdoor food festivals, pancake breakfasts, and other events where food is served to the public on a temporary basis. In order to obtain a permit, review the Temporary Food and/or Drink Service Establishments Brochure, complete the Application for Temporary Food Events and submit the application form and fee to the WCHD at least 7 days prior to the event. Fees and requirements for Temporary Food Service Permits are based on risk type. Your risk type and the corresponding fee are determined by the menu items and the amount of food preparation to be done on-site as set forth on the fee page of the Brochure. All vendors applying to serve potentially hazardous foods that require extensive preparation and long-term cooking (pig roasts, smoked meat) must also submit a Hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP) plan. Those responsible for planning and coordinating a temporary food event must file an Event Coordinator Application with the WCHD containing details about the event and an event sketch showing the names and locations of vendors and the locations of facilities like restrooms, cooking and storage areas and solid waste disposal.

Illinois Food Handling Regulation Enforcement Act

The Illinois Food Handling Regulation Enforcement Act (410 ILCS 625), amended by SB1495, passed into law on August 27, 2013, changes the existing training and certification requirements for food safety managers, as well as establishes food handler training requirements. 

 

2019 ADOPTION OF THE FDA FOOD CODE

2019 ADOPTION OF THE FDA FOOD CODE

In preparation for the January 1, 2019 adoption of the FDA Food Code to the Illinois Food Service Sanitation Code Will County Health Department food inspectors will be providing information throughout 2018 on the changes food service operations should expect. One significant change is the requirement for a PERSON IN CHARGE (PIC). The Person in Charge shall be the permit holder or designated by the permit holder. The Person in Charge shall be present during all hours of operations. This means that when the permit holder or manager has a day off or leaves the food service establishment they must designate a Person in Charge. The Person in Charge shall demonstrate knowledge of food borne disease prevention, the application of food safety principles and the requirements of the Food Code. Not designating a Person in Charge that is capable of fulfilling the requirements would result in a priority violation that could impact whether the food service establishment will Pass, Pass with Condition or Fail the inspection. During this transition period it is important to obtain training for staff and to implement food safety procedures that all staff are aware of and practice on a routine basis. The permit holder and management team should become familiar with the FDA Food Code. It would be advantageous to create a written standard operating procedure manual. Also, establishing a chain of command to identify the Person(s) in Charge will be one step in ensuring that inspections result with PASS.
