Special Event Organizer Packet

Each special event involving food is unique. Due to the way the rules are written, some events and vendors may be exempt. It is in the best interest of the organizer, sponsor, coordinator, food vendors, and the health of the public that you contact the Union County Environmental Health Department, Fire Marshal, Zoning, etc., prior to any event involving food to determine what will be required.
