What is a Temporary Food Establishment?

A temporary food establishment is one that serves food to the public at a fixed location for not more than twenty-one consecutive days in conjunction with a single event or celebration. If the event is advertised to the general public with flyers, banners, newspaper articles or by any other means, a temporary food permit is required. It makes no difference whether the food is being sold for profit or provided at no charge.
