Submit a Food Facility Permit Application Form and applicable Fee. If you are unsure about which fee to submit, give us a call and provide details as to what your food facility will be selling. By talking to one of our Inspection Staff members ahead of time, you could avoid paying the incorrect permit fee. (530) 745-2300.
Please make sure when filling out the application that the Menu Information Section is filled in completely with detailed information. This is the section that determines what type of food you will be selling, and thus the type of permit type required.
It's important to state if the food is pre-packaged or not. Please include the manufacturer information and label, if possible, so Consumer Protection Team staff can verify that the food is coming from an approved source.
