Ledge Light Health District is responsible for licensing and inspecting food vendors in the District. The regulation and licensing of these activities is governed by Sections 19-13b48 of the Connecticut Public Health Code and local (District) food service regulations.

The frequency of food establishment inspections is based on an establishment’s classification. The more complex the food preparation procedures are, the more frequently an establishment must be inspected.  Facilities hot holding food that allows the growth of illness causing bacteria also require a Qualified Food Operator and food safety training of all staff.
