Please read the following information about food service events.  Once you have read through the policies and procedures, check the box at the bottom of the page to indicate that you agree to abide by all food service guidelines.  After you have agreed to follow the guidelines, you can then fill-out and submit the food service request form to Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S).

After EH&S has reviewed the form, you will be contacted regarding your event at the phone number or E-mail that you provide.

Food service requests must be submitted at least ten (10) business days prior to your event.  Please note that if your organization'’s request is not submitted by this deadline, your event will not be approved.

You can find additional information about FSU’'s temporary food sales policy in the Safety Manual.

If you have questions or concerns, feel free to contact our office for assistance.

Temporary food sales are conducted at portable booths, stands or tables.
