Temporary Food Event Permits - Fort Mason Center
After you have been contracted to host an event at Fort Mason Center, they will inform the Public Health Officer about event food service to the public. At that point you as the Event Organizer should fill out the Event Organizer Application and distribute a Food Vendor Application to each of your vendors.
Once all the Food Vendor Applications and Event Organizer Applications are completed, they should be submitted in one packet via email to the Public Health Officer for review. Applications can also be faxed to 415-561-4727 or sent in the regular mail to: GGNRA Public Health Officer, Fort Mason, Building 201, San Francisco, CA 94123.
After the Public Health Officer has reviewed the applications, Event Organizers and Food Vendors will be notified by email if they have been approved or dismissed to participate in the event. Typically, Temporary Food Event Permits are granted at the event after vendors successfully pass food safety inspection. Permits are generally valid for the duration of the event only. Therefore, subsequent events require another application and inspection.

During the early 20th century, the army relied on standardized architectural plans to construct different types of buildings. That is why Fort Baker Building 533 and the Fort Mason GGNRA headquarters’ building look so similar: they were both constructed in 1902 as hospitals.
