Serving Food

If your on-campus event includes a request to serve food, please be sure to understand the following requirements and take the related actions:

Serving food at a closed meeting

If your plans for food are just so that your group doesn’t go hungry while they attend a meeting, there is no need to do anything further. Be sure to store and handle your food according to Food Safe practices.

Catering for a meeting or event

Catering can be arranged through the on-campus food service providers.

Serving outside food at an open event

If you are planning to serve outside food on campus at an open event, you need to obtain:

  • Approval from KPU Food Services
  • A temporary food service permit from the regional Health Authority


To ensure your request meets these requirements, please contact us.
