To serve food and/or beverages for an event/class/meeting held at the WSU Spokane County Extension facility, food service permits, exemptions from permit, or variances may be required. Such requirements are in effect regardless of whether there is a fee for the food or beverages or not.
For all food events, determine if your proposed temporary food service event is private or public.
- A private temporary food service event is defined as an event with food, regardless of fee, promoted by limited word of mouth or advertising to a limited group of people.
- A public temporary food service event is defined as an event with food, regardless of fee, promoted by advertising (word of mouth, radio, WSU Announcements, Facebook, etc.) inviting the general public to attend.
If your event is advertised inviting the general public to attend, it is considered a public event.
If your event will feature food and/or beverages, complete the Temporary Food Service Event room reservation form.
