A temporary food permit is required when an individual or group intends to serve food to the public at one location for a period of 21 days or less in conjunction with a single event or celebration. Each permit application is reviewed using HACCP analysis to assure that safe food preparation and handling techniques are used. An Environmental Health Specialist will inspect temporary food events to assure that food service is conducted in accordance with safe practices.
