Public Safety

Make sure to get proper permit when planning food fundraisers

By Cindy Granier

As the University of Houston continues to support the March for Babies, different food fundraisers are being planned by various departments on campus.

The UH Department of Public Safety encourages those who are coordinating the fundraisers to contact Environmental Health and Life Safety to obtain a temporary food dealers permit prior to hosting a food fundraiser.

All faculty, staff, or students serving food at an event or intending to use a caterer/outside contractor to cater an event on campus must follow all rules and regulations mandated by the Department of Public Safety Fire Marshal’s Office.
