A temporary food event is defined in code is an “event or celebration” which is a significant occurrence or happening sponsored by a civic, business, educational, government, community, or veterans’ organization and may include athletic contests. For example, an event does not include a single store’s grand opening or sale.
The license allows a food vendor to operate for a period of no more than 14 consecutive days in conjunction with a single event or celebration.
Applications must be submitted at a minimum of 3 business days prior to the start of an event. All applications must be submitted through the business offices. No money or applications are accepted in the field by inspectors.
Please refer to the “Basics Requirements for Temporary Food Establishments” pdf below for further information on the restrictions of temporary food event set ups.
