Health GradesBy Cheryl Thurston

Welcome to October, and the lower temperatures we long for. Good-bye September, until we meet again. Did you eat out more than usual in September? I know I did. That’s why I enjoy the monthly reports formulated by the Bladen County Health Department, concerning the cleanliness of our local eateries. Thanks to them, we can make informed choices whenever we go out to eat.

And thanks to BladenOnline.com for publishing this helpful information every month as a public service. We all rely on our media outlets, more than we realize sometimes. Please check out the list below to see the grades received by the restaurants, kitchens and cafeterias that were inspected in September. Bon Appitité.
