Food Permits

We carry out a city-wide program for food safety, to promote health, and to prevent food-borne disease through education, training and regulation. Our program is designed to work in partnership with the people who make the day-today decisions that determine food safety — the owners, operators and employees of all food service establishments.

Senior Nutrition Programs

Our senior nutrition programs are designed to eliminate food insecurity for older, vulnerable adults. Through a network of community-based agencies and government entities, we manage the distribution of close to 1.5 million meals annually, to adults 60 years or older, throughout Houston and Harris County.
