Temporary Food Event Permits - Park Partners
After you have been approved to host an event by a GGNRA Park Parnter, they will inform the Public Health Officer of your events food service to the public. At that point, as the Event Organizer, you should fill out the following application.
Next, all food vendors need to fill out one of the following forms based on their operation. Reference this document to determine the operations' level of risk. Then, distribute the appropriate application to your vendors.
Once all the Food Vendor Applications and Event Organizer Applications are completed, they should be submitted in one packet to the Public Health Officer for review. Applications can also be faxed to 415-561-4727 or sent in the regular mail to the attention of LT Tara Carolfi.
After the Public Health Officer has reviewed the applications, Event Organizers and Food Vendors will be notified if they have been approved or dismissed to participate in the event. 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. Park Partners are currently charged only the application fee for each event. Inspection fees will be waived for Park Partners until further notice.
If you have any questions about the Temporary Food Event Permit process while working with a Park Partner, contact LT Tara Carolfi at (415) 561-4743 or via email.
