4.2 On-Campus Food Policy

4.2.1 On-Campus Food Sales The preparation and sale of food and beverages in and around campus facilities is reserved exclusively to the University Food Services Department. No club, organization, department, or University group may conduct food or beverage sales on campus, including fund-raising, without the approval of the Director of Food Services. All fund-raising projects involving the sale of food or beverages must be approved by the Director of Food Services and must be supervised by the Director or his designate. Individual purchases of food ordered and delivered from outside vendors as a part of a service to a residence or office is not a part of this policy.

4.2.2 On-Campus Catering The Food Services Department offers a full line of catering services ranging from special functions scheduled in the campus dining facilities to special occasion items. These services are available to students, faculty and staff of the University who order such services either for receipt of catered items at the Food Services Department for consumption elsewhere, or for the provision of such services at one of Food Services' facilities, or other campus location as arranged. Full service catering off campus by Food Services is available only for official University functions. Requests for catering services should be made to the Office of the Director of Food Services. North Carolina State Purchasing and Contract guidelines must be followed any time University funds are involved. Any food purchased from a University departmental budget must conform to these guidelines and can only be made with prior approval for payment of catered food from funds within the University's State Appropriation's Budget. Clubs or organizations are permitted and may receive authorization to contract with a licensed catering service for private (no sales on site) functions which are limited to members and/or guests of the organization. If the function is to take place on campus, a special campus catering permit must be secured from the Office of Business Affairs and before the event can be scheduled or a contract can be executed.

4.2.3 Catering Permit Any recognized student, faculty or staff organization must secure a campus catering permit from the Office of Business Affairs prior to scheduling or contracting any activity that includes the serving of food not prepared by the University Food Services Department. This permit must be displayed by the vendor. Unauthorized private vendors in violation of this policy will be required to comply or vacate the campus.
