Arizona State University departments and registered student organizations must use authorized catering service for on-campus events. Due to liability issues it is imperative that individuals representing ASU through University functions ensure that all risk management concerns are addressed by securing approved catering services as outlined in the following information. ASU funds may not be spent to purchase food from businesses not contracted with ASU or on the Approved Food Providers List.
ASU Catering must be used for food and/or beverage service for an event hosted in UCB and VDP. For more information or menu options please call 602-543-3662 or stop by their office located on the second floor of UCB directly above the information desk. Food may also be purchased at any of the dining venues in UCB events held within the building.
If an ASU department or registered student organization expects to receive food donations or require a special menu item that cannot be provided by ASU Catering or from the Approved Food Providers list (per vendor evaluation), a Food Exception Request must be submitted.
Please forward Food Exception Request a minimum of 14 days prior to the event date. ASU representatives will review the request for final approval. Your event cannot take place without an approved Food Exception Request which must be displayed at the event.
A Food Exception Request must be submitted for the following instances:
The event is for guests that are not considered internal members of your department or organization unless they are invited to provide training or expertise in an area critical to the event
The event is open to the public
The event takes place in a location that is accessible to the public or the greater University community even if not the attended audience
Special Menu items that cannot be provided by ASU Catering or Approved Food Providers List
Giveaways of food/beverage items at your event
A Temporary Food Establishment Permit must be completed when a group hires a caterer for an event which is open to the general public by invitation or advertisement. A $70 fee is due when the application is submitted to Campus Health Services at minimum for 14 days prior to the event date. Please call 480-965-6853 with any questions.
Please note: To secure your catering request please use authorized caterers for all other catering events on University property. A vendor permit must accompany the Food Exception Request when supplemental caterers are authorized for on-campus events. In addition, you need to comply with the University insurance requirements when preparing and serving donated foods for special events.
