The Wood County Health Department has announced the winners of the 2021 Clean Plate Award.

The 2021 Clean Plate Award has been given to 48 licensed food facilities out of more than 800 in Wood County.

These facilities have been dedicated to upholding excellent sanitation and food safety knowledge within their operation. Recipients receive a certificate of excellence and recognition of excellent performance in food safety from the Wood County Health Department. The winners of the Clean Plate Award will also receive a decal to display at their facility.

This is the 10th year that the Wood County Board of Health will present this award. Facilities that receive it meet requirements including:

Up-to-date licensing

Minimal violations during their inspections

Staff who are well trained in food safety knowledge

No confirmed complaints, foodborne illnesses or administrative hearings with the Health Department over the past 2 years.

“We are always thankful for the food facilities that work hard to earn this recognition.
