    If you are organizing an event where food will be served to the public, it is your responsibility to make sure that the food is prepared and served safely. Anyone assembling, preparing, or serving food to the public needs a permit. Even if you are giving food away, a permit is required. The only exception is commercially prepackaged foods that do not require refrigeration, such as bottled drinks, and individual packages of chips, cookies, crackers, and candy. An application for the Temporary Food Service Event must be submitted to the UConn Environmental Health and Safety office no later than two weeks before the event. To complete a TFSE application, please visit http://www.ehs.uconn.edu and follow the Food Safety and Public Health link and click on “TFSE Application”.
