Only non-profit exhibitors or student clubs may register to sell food. Non-profits may partner with professional food providers if they submit a registration form with payment along with a Partnership Agreement Form. Food providers should submit their own registration forms without payment -- listing their non-profit partner on the form. Registration checks for food exhibitors will only be accepted from non-profit organizations (501-c-3 or 501-c-4) organizations. Non-profit exhibitors selling food are responsible for sending in their own Health Permit Waiver Form, which should be submitted to the Orange County Health Department by email or mail before April 15, 2013. Contact for Health Permit Waiver Form information is Leslie Moffitt, email@example.com or 714.433.6163. Mailing address is HCA/Environmental Health, 1241 East Dyer Road, Santa Ana, CA. 92705. Once you receive your permit waiver, you should have it with you at your table on the day of the festival.
SUA Clubs serving food should submit the single page Health Permit Waiver form to SUA Community Relations Office by April 1 for a group submittal.
