If Ivy Tech, or its sponsored organizations, clubs or departments, wishes to serve or sell food, it is operating as a food establishment under Indiana law and is therefore subject to a host of dept of health regulations around certification, sanitation, and operations. Ivy Tech is not an exempt entity. To engage in food service and sales, one must adhere to the Indiana Food Code. Conducting a bake sale or food fundraiser with home-prepared goods would not be allowable. Pre-packaged, shelf-stable food items made for service or sale, however, are allowable. Pitch-in style gatherings for a private group, club or department are allowable, however, we urge caution and recommend the following actions: 1) ensure that the condition of areas for food storage, distribution and eating are appropriate and safe; 2) require volunteer cooks to acknowledge receipt and understanding of the USDA's 7 Food Safety Steps and these Food Allergy guidelines; 3) ensure all dishes are appropriately labeled and list ingredients where potential food allergens may be present; and 4) appoint a food coordinator or supervisor for oversight.
