Members represent all parts of the food service industry. From full-service restaurants and food carts, to commissaries and non-profits.

We’re always looking for members from a wide variety of backgrounds who are interested in food service sanitation and safety. Priority is given to:

  • Food industry representatives (owners, managers, staff, etc.)
  • Public representatives with an interest in local food safety – (public interest groups, educators, health care professionals, etc.)

Members serve a 1- to 3-year term. You may be able to join if you live or have a vested interest in Multnomah County. We also welcome participation from non-voting members. If you’re interested, contact us.
