Food at Campus Events
If your group wants to serve food at your next event (i.e. cookies and milk, pizza, off-campus catering, etc), make sure to complete the Food Service module of SAO360. In this module, list all the food, and provide as much detail as possible about cooking, holding, and serving procedures for all non-packaged food served.
To become Food Safety trained, take this short quiz. Food Safety Training is only good for one year - if you were trained for 2009-2010, you will need to take the quiz again.
Food Safety Training
All student groups and residence halls that plan to prepare and serve food for events and hall food service operations during the 2016-2017 academic year must have at least two people complete Food Safety Training. At all times at a concession stand or other food service event, a Food Safety Trained representative must be present. Even if you were trained in the previous yer, you must be retrained for this year. In order to be as prepared as possible for events, groups are encouraged to have as many members of their organization trained as they wish. Food Safety Training was coordinated in conjunction with the Department of Risk Management and Safety, and University Catering.
If your group wishes to use an off-campus caterer or restaurant, that restaurant must meet liability insurance and health department standards. Please check to make sure your restaurant has up-to-date insurance and health department certificates. Include the restaurant’s contact information in case it is needed in the SAO360 request. If you need to confirm the status of a local business, please contact the Office of Risk Management and Safety.
You do not need to complete the Food Service module for Concession Stands, but you do have to have representatives Food Safety Trained. Go to the Concession Stand page for more information.
