To serve all citizens looking to receive useful information and skills,  two different sessions have been set for the day, the first session will last from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and the second will run from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Dr. Chad Anderson, Public Health Administrator for the Christian County Health Department says speakers from the CC Health Department and the Illinois Department of Public Health will share words at the food safety workshop.


Joe Torres, Director of Environmental Health, says common issues he sees while visiting restaurants are broken thermometers in food storage areas, signage, and basic floor refuse. Torres says that even simple infractions will keep the health department coming back until changes are made.


In an effort to save the time and money of local restaurants in the county, the professionals with the Christian County Health Department invite workers in the food service industry to their food safety workshops.
