Polk County Environmental Health licenses food establishments annually, conducts two semi-annual inspections, conducts plan reviews and provides food safety consultation. For information on licensing, plan review requirements and general sanitation requirements, visit the State of Oregon Public Health Food Service Regulations website.
We license individuals/groups intending to prepare and serve food to the public at benevolent/non-benevolent events, and review menu and food-handler certification prior to operation. Please note, if you are applying for a benevolent temporary restaurant license you will be required to provide a tax identification number for your organization.
If you have questions on booth requirements, visit Temporary Restaurant Operation Guidelines, which also contains the Temporary Restaurant License Application. Please print this form and submit it to the Environmental Health office.
