The Environmental Health program issues licenses, conducts inspections, investigates foodborne illness and other complaints, and provides consultations for mobile food units operating in Washington County. By definition, mobile food units are food service businesses that operate from any vehicle that is self-propelled, or can be pulled or pushed down a sidewalk, street, highway or waterway, on which food is prepared, processed or converted, or which is used in selling and dispensing food to the end consumer.
Mobile food units must operate from a licensed restaurant, commissary or warehouse unless it has a very limited menu and adequate equipment and utensils to operate without a base to support food service activities. A warehouse may only be used to store prepackaged goods.
