The Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) is in the process of making significant revisions to the food service policy for schools. The revisions take effect in July 2019. The revised policy will require a Food Establishment Permit for all concession stands. This permit is in addition to the current permit issued for food service operations at each site.
Concession stand sales are the primary focus; the significant changes include:
Risk Assessors within the Safety Unit will visit and inspect campuses annually. Noted violations of the SNHD policy will be communicated to the site administrator. The Safety Unit will work directly with SNHD to develop a training guide and materials to assist the schools with safe food sales and operations.
Additional questions can be sent to email@example.com or 702-799-6496 ext. 5650.
Due to SNHD policy changes, schools should suspend purchases of food, supplies, and concession stand equipment until further direction is provided.
