Riverside County opens process for home-based food permits
RIVERSIDE – (INT) - Riverside County Department of Environmental Health is accepting applications for home-based food business permits.
Homeowners must go through the county’s Department of Environmental Health to get approval and permits prior to starting their business. There are restrictions as to how many meals can be served and how much income can be made.
Home kitchens will have scheduled inspections by Environmental Health Specialists prior to being allowed to open for business; yearly when they renew their permit; and if any complaints are received from the public.
Permitted home based food businesses will not be required to display letter grades as required by restaurants.
Riverside County is among the first issuing business permits for home-based food.
