Churches, fire departments and other organizations in Allegheny County that will be holding fish fries during the Lenten season need to have a valid health permit to operate, a county spokesman said.

The fee for a temporary permit is $47 and should be included with the application.

The application, which also includes a checklist for applicants, can be found on ACHD’s website.

Sponsors that do not already have a valid health permit need to complete a temporary permit application and provide the permit fee to ACHD no later than Feb. 12 for timely review and processing before Lent begins Feb. 26.

Only checks and money orders will be accepted, must be made payable to Treasurer of Allegheny County, and should be mailed to: ACHD Food Safety Program, 3901 Penn Avenue, Bldg. #1, Pittsburgh, PA 15224-1318.

Anyone with questions or needs more information may also contact the department by phone at (412) 578-8044 or by emailing foodsafety@alleghenycounty.us.
