MEDINA — Nineteen local food service operations — including nine school cafeterias — received Excellence Awards from the Medina County Health Department as acknowledgement of their infraction-free inspection reports and service, sanitation, and safety efforts.

Twenty-eight others received Compliance Awards.

The Excellence Awards are presented to facilities that routine food safety-inspections found without any type of violation and demonstrate overall excellence in food sanitation and organization.

“Food operations earning this award have achieved sanitation scores that are the best in Medina County,” Health Commissioner Krista Wasowski said.

“These establishments have demonstrated that they take food protection seriously and have incorporated food safety and sanitation practices into their day-to-day business operations.”
