The California Retail Food Code (CalCode) outlines requirements for the sale or distribution of food to the public by restaurants, cafeterias, mobile food facilities, catering services and temporary food facilities (special events).
Safety, Health & Sustainability (SH&S) routinely inspects and permits all permanent food facilities on campus to ensure they maintain the highest standards of safe food handling and cleanliness. At a minimum, all facilities must comply with CalCode.
To ensure the public does not become ill from a food event on campus, a Temporary Food Facility Permit is required for public events where food is sold or given away.
Exception: Internal meetings and invitation only events are generally excluded from these requirements because they are considered private events.
