  • With springtime ahead and warmer weather upon us comes the thought of planning festivals, benefits, fundraisers, community dinners, open houses and other occasions to serve food and, or drinks to the public. 
    For public health safety reasons, public events where food and drink are prepared or served must be inspected and licensed by the health department. The event planning must also meet and follow the temporary food requirements, which can be viewed on the Woodford County Health Department website. 
    A temporary food or drink license must be obtained prior to opening for business. The cost of a single-use, up to 14-day continuous event, food or drink permit is $35. A multiple-use temporary food or drink permit is $45. 
    There is no charge for temporary food permits for not-for-profit organizations. 
    Any temporary food or drink permit issued last calendar year has expired and requires a new application and permit. 
    If you are planning an event or serving food and/or drinks at an event open to the public, please contact the Woodford County Health Department at 467-3064 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 8 a.m.- noon Friday, or visit our website at http://www.woodfordhealth.org.
