Campus Food Code

On Jan.1, 2019 changes were implemented to the Minnesota Food Code that affects serving food on campus:

  1. Potluck events – The Minnesota Department of Health guidelines for potlucks includes examples of what would be considered a potluck or an event that would require the use of a licensed facility. To qualify for exemption from the food licensing agreement, none of the food can be prepared, stored, or served from within a licensed kitchen.
  2. For events where food is not being prepared by or in a licensed facility, a consumer advisory placard is required with the food being served. The advisory should state that the food served was not prepared by or within a licensed facility and attendees participate at their own risk.
  3. Events that serve raw or undercooked food should refer to the consumer advisory warning for further information. In those cases, signage is required to alert participants of possible issues.
