Founded by Dr. Harlan Stueven, the Dining Safety Alliance is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that fosters community awareness, analyzes research, develops tools and training that enhance the ability of hospitality leadership to implement improved processes, all with a goal of reducing the number and severity of food-related illnesses.

The Dining Safety Alliance works with Dining Grades, Inc., with full access to its database, the industry’s premier collection of public health restaurant inspection results. This information has been analyzed, using proprietary, process patent pending, data-driven methodology to produce a uniform rating for each dining outlet using a letter grade system. For the first time, consumers and industry leaders have a resource through which they can compare and evaluate public health scores across different jurisdictions using a single scale.

Through strategic partnerships we are also working to provide public health authorities with data and analysis that can promote development of more consistent processes and inspection scores between agencies.

The Dining Safety Alliance is committed to working with the hospitality industry, government, and the public health community to improve public health, reduce the incidence of food borne illness, and save lives.
