Kendall County Food Protection Program

Kendall County Food Protection Program The Kendall County Food Protection Program is responsible for inspecting and regulating food service establishments and food related activities within Kendall County.

We issue permits for and inspect restaurants, temporary food events, and mobile vendors.


Our food safety workshop is happening today. If your facility is a high or medium risk, this workshop counts as an inspection. We only have room at our 2pm workshop. The morning session is full. If you are available stop over. The workshop will last 60 to 90 minutes.

According to Aaron Rybski, the Kendall County Health Department’s director of environmental health, and Rachael Browning, the department’s food program coordinator, there are quite a few misconceptions about food safety, restaurant inspections and food-borne illnesses.

Clostridium perfringens |

Do you ever wonder why you only have 2 hours to cool food from 135F to 70F? Clostridium perfringens! This spore-forming bacteria can reproduce quickly in the danger zone and get people sick.

Clostridium perfringens (C. perfringens) is one of the most common causes of food poisoning in the United States. According to some estimates, this type of bacteria causes nearly a million illnesses each year.


With widespread power outages throughout Kendall County, it is a good reminder that if you don't have any power, you need to stop serving food!

Keep food in refrigerators and freezers cold by keeping the doors closed, keep an eye on how long the power has been out, and take temperatures to make sure that food is at 41F and below or 135F and higher once the power comes back on.


Effective January 1, 2018, the State of IL is no longer requiring the FSSMC certificate! What does this mean to you? You will no longer have to send $35 to IL to get your approved certificate! The Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) certificate will be accepted in place of the FSSMC. Please contact us if you have additional questions at 630-553-8026!
