The Joplin Food Code concerning food service establishments is available online.
The term food establishment means an operation that stores, prepares, packages, serves, vends, or otherwise provides food for human consumption, such as a restaurant, central preparation facility, catered feeding location, catering operations, vending operations, and/or vehicles used to transport food.
A food service establishment that operates for a period of no more than 14 consecutive days in conjunction with a single event or celebration is the focus of this pamphlet. In other words, church suppers, fairs, farmer’s markets, or other similar celebrations would be considered temporary events if they are advertised as open to the general public. Bake sales offering only non-potentially hazardous foods are exempt from inspection, but require notification to the Health Department.
