Guidelines for Food Related Events and Food Sales


To comply with the Santa Clara County Health Department's regulations related to the preparation, handling, and distribution of food on campus, as well as to guarantee the health and safety of all campus constituencies, the following guidelines for food distribution, including free food and sales have been established for students, employees, and renters at Foothill College:

            • Food items must be prepackaged. Prepackaged items are food items packaged at a licensed bakery, restaurant, or grocery store, OR
            •  Food items must be prepared by a licensed food service provider and a current Environmental Health Certificate/Permit as well as proof of required insurance must be provided to the Facilities Rental Coordinator in order to receive event authorization.
            • No foods or perishable beverages can be prepared or stored in a private home due to possible contamination.
            • All food and perishable beverages shall be protected at all times from unnecessary handling and possible contamination (i.e. gloves must be worn by servers and items refrigerated)

Additional Points of Clarification

            • Pizza can be sold by the slice if purchased from a licensed food service provider and is distributed by the slice to the public, by a certificated Food Handler, and that the pizza is protected at all times from unnecessary handling and possible contamination (i.e. gloves must be worn by servers and items refrigerated as needed). The food handler's certificate must be on file with the Facilities Rental Coordinator.
            • Baked goods may be separated in single servings for sale if they are purchased from a licensed food service provider and are distributed individually to the public, by a current certificated Food Handler, provided the baked goods are protected at all times from unnecessary handling and possible contamination (i.e. gloves must be worn by servers and items refrigerated as needed).
            • No crock pots are allowed.
            • The food policy applies to food in baskets assembled for fundraising unless the food items are prepackaged.
