Food Handler Policy

Food Handler Policies

Departments and groups hosting university sponsored events must follow certain guidelines when it comes to providing food to members of the UD community. Aramark is the exclusive caterer for the University of Dallas. Outside caterers on are not allowed to provide their services on campus.

Departments and groups who want to cook, grill, serve, and/or sell pre-prepared food must submit the Food Permit Approval Form two weeks prior to the event. A representative from the department or group will be required to meet with various departments to ensure the event will be safely executed. Additional paperwork may need to be filed with each department. All approval forms are reviewed and approved by the Director of Student Affairs or designee.

Sponsors of events involving food that needs to be cooked or held at a specific temperature must consult with the Director of Dining Services on a case by case basis to determine the best food handling practices. Depending on the method of preparation and what is being served, groups may be required to hire an Aramark food service manager to supervise the event.

Events requesting a grill, open flame, or electricity must consulted with Facilities to ensure fire safety.
Baked goods can be sold in Haggar University Center and on the Mall. Groups are not required to submit a Food Permit Approval Form for bake sales.

Failure to comply with these rules will result in the immediate termination of the event and violating groups will cease to remain in good standing with the University.
