Letter Grading Workshops for Mobile Food Vendors

The Health Department recently published rules for the new letter grading program for food carts and trucks that will launch in December. To learn more about the new rules and how mobile food vendors can get a top grade, you can attend a workshop in December.

Whether you work in a restaurant, soup kitchen or other food service establishment, the Health Department has important information about operating a clean, safe, healthy and legal business. Use the links provided on the left to find the guidance and information you need. To assist operators further, they may request a 3-year inspection history report for their food service establishment.

Restaurant Food Safety Workshops

The Health Department holds food safety workshops for operators throughout the five boroughs. At these workshops, you will:

  • Learn how to achieve and maintain an “A” grade
  • Receive an inspection history report that describes your restaurant’s repeat violations and how to correct them
  • Be able to ask questions and receive guidance from Health Department staff on improving your restaurant's food safety practices

At this time, there are no workshops scheduled. Please check this site in February 2019 for the Spring 2019 schedule.
