Food Protection Services

General Services

The Allentown Health Bureau licenses and inspects all retail food establishments in the City of Allentown including restaurants, caterers, markets, convenience stores, clubs, mobile food vehicles, temporary food stands, non-profit food facilities, churches, food banks, food vending machines and anywhere food is sold or distributed to the end consumer. In addition, the Allentown Health Bureau investigates complaints of food-borne illness and adulterated food products in Allentown facilities.

Food Facility Inspection Reports

Inspection reports of food facilities in Allentown are available for public access on the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture website; this website works best with Google Chrome. To access the inspection reports you may have to change your computer's settings to allow pop-ups. Please understand that each inspection is a "snapshot" representing conditions observed on the day and time of the inspection. An individual inspection report may or may not be representative of the overall, long-term sanitation and food safety of a particular food facility.

Food Service Applications

All facilities that prepare, serve, sell or give away food are required to have a food service establishment license issued by the Allentown Health Bureau. If you are planning to open a new facility or take over an existing facility, you must first contact the Allentown Health Bureau to complete the Food Service Application and start the process.
