Food Safety

The Food Safety program is designed to protect the health of the general public who visit our facilities at UCSF. We are responsible for conducting thorough food safety assessments, approving temporary food events, investigating foodborne illness complaints, providing food safety training, and conducting plan reviews for new construction or renovations on campus.

Temporary Food Event Application

Registered Campus Organizations (RCOs) and other organizations must submit a Temporary Event Application before providing potentially hazardous foods (PHFs) at an event open to the general PUBLIC (or campus community). A permit is not required for a PRIVATE event attended only by group members or invited guests (i.e. closed event/by invitation only, office potluck, office meeting).


All (RCOs) must request approval to hold any type of fund raiser on campus, including a bake sale. To request approval to hold a bake sale as well as to serve food at a public event, a student organization must submit an event request in the Group Portal.


If you are not an RCO you must complete a temporary event application


If you are uncertain as to whether your event is public or private, please contact [email protected].
