Sounds strange right?
In Sacramento County if you sell food, any type of food ANYWHERE… you must have a health permit from Sacramento County.
I was wondering how this could be so I contacted the DEPT.
It is true, anyone regardless if on school grounds or off school grounds are required to have this permit that runs anywhere from 263.00 to 1500.00 per year all depends on what your club is classified as.
Most schools think it is OK to sell food at football games and basketball games however the snackbar is not covered and it is breaking the law if you have not paid for your permit and have it hanging..
Giving away food verses SELLING food are two different things..
School Cafeterias are the only thing on a School Campus that can sell food..
I told them that my schools booster club runs the football and basketball snack bar during high school games and they said it did not matter MUST HAVE A HEALTH PERMIT …
