Temporary Food Facilities

A temporary license can be issued for someone operating a food stand/establishment between 2-14 days (consecutive or non-consecutive) in one location. 

A temporary license can also be issued in conjunction with an “event”. An event is defined as “a gathering or celebration conducted to raise money for a stated purpose” (usually a non-profit cause). Examples of events include carnivals, parades, ethnic festivals, car shows etc. 

One day operations are not required to obtain a temporary license, however, they may still be inspected and are required to follow the food code.  Operators at events between 2-14 days must obtain temporary licenses. Vendors who wish to operate at several or multiple events should consider obtaining seasonal licenses. 

Temporary Licenses are not issued to Food Trucks.
