The County has strict regulations about food being prepared in residential kitchens and served at classroom parties. It is not allowed. All food brought onto campuses for classroom parties must originate from certified kitchens, commercial institutions or commercial food service stores. Compliance of the guidelines will be the responsibility of the classroom teacher or educator.
- Items prepared at home are not approved.
- All food offered is delivered at the proper temperature and non-wrapped food is served with a non-latex gloved hand or utensil. Example would be a pizza party from an approved vendor which is served by a gloved-hand or with a serving utensil.
- All food offered is being consumed within a reasonable time and is maintained at proper temperature.
- No contact is to be made by a non-gloved hand with any food items that are not pre-wrapped.
