Date of Approval

A completed Permit to Sell/Serve Food on Campus shall be sufficient for the above required written notification. The approved permit must be displayed at the sale or serving site.
Informal, small-group, "pot-luck" events in which no money changes hands (neither as "donation" nor as "price") are not subject to the requirements of this policy, but the participants are encouraged to notify Environmental Health and Safety of the planned activity, and to follow safe food-handling practices.
The following related policies may also apply:
Acceptable places where food may be prepared for sale or gratis distribution on campus are:
Foods such as hotdogs, hamburgers, steaks, etc., may, of course, be cooked outside at the location where they are to be sold or served, if the location and handling procedures are satisfactory, and refrigeration is available in an acceptable form, and an onsite hand-washing facility is provided.
An exception to the above may be made for products that are not of a potentially hazardous nature, such as baked goods (cookies, brownies, etc.), at the discretion of Environmental Health and Safety. If in doubt about the need for a Permit, contact the Department of Environmental Health and Safety for guidance, or visit their Web site, http://www.ohiou.edu/ehs/.
The above criteria shall not apply to licensed Food Service Operations, which in the course of routine business operations provide delivery services of their products to residence halls, etc. However these businesses shall complete and submit for approval the Permit to Sell/Serve Food on Campus for various special events such as festivals, etc., of a temporary nature.
