Food Permits

Don't forget to allow at least two weeks to get your food permits approved, especially if you are intending to serve food from an Off-Campus restaurant or caterer. Make sure you get all the required documentation to ensure that your food permit can be approved well before your event is scheduled. Need more information, check out our Food Permit page or Contact Us for more information or questions.

Got Ants?

With warmer temperatures approaching, so are the trails of ants that seek out moisture and sources of food and sugar. An easy way to protect yourself is to maintain a clean work environment especially in eating areas by taking simple steps like emptying trash and wiping down surfaces. Avoid using ant spray whenever possible or lightly spray areas at the end of the day to allow the spray to dissipate over the evening hours.
