Only one of 17 Maricopa food establishments did not score excellent after being inspected by Pinal County’s health department Dec. 16-Jan. 15.

F.O.R. Maricopa’s food bank continued to have trouble with hot water at its distribution location in Santa Cruz Elementary School. Hand-washing sinks are required to provide water at 100 degrees within seconds. During inspection, after 10 minutes, hot water was at only 70 degrees. F.O.R. Maricopa was requested to correct the problem as soon as possible.
