Regardless of the size or location of your event, you may only use ASU-approved caterers for event catering. The only exception is for staff/faculty meetings within department conference rooms. For the complete list, please visit https://eoss.asu.edu/sites/default/files/Approved_Food_Providers_List.pdf
Aramark is the preferred caterer for all on-campus events. Please visit http://sundevildining.asu.edu/catering to view menus. Contact ASUCateringDowntown@gmail.com to place orders. You must use Aramark at Student Center/Post Office Building. Remember, you cannot order catering in any ASU classroom space.
There are some special occasions where you may want to use a caterer that is NOT on the approved vendor list. Examples could include donated or complimentary food, or specialty menu items that cannot be accommodated by an approved caterer. Caterers must be in good standing with the Maricopa County Health Department and meet ASU's minimum insurance requirements.
In order to use a caterer that is NOT on the approved list, please visit https://www.asu.edu/studentaffairs/mu/events/docs/FoodWaiverRequest.pdf to complete the form and await approval.
This permit is only required for public events (for example serving free food at the college Homecoming tent). This does not include invitation-only events. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for permitting information and permission to serve food to the general public.
If you plan to serve alcohol on ASU Campus, you must complete a permit application and wait for approval. Please visit http://www.asu.edu/police/documents/alcohol_permit_form.pdf to download the permit application. More info can be found here: http://www.asu.edu/police/documents/alcoholpermitinstructions.pdf
You may be required to also apply for a special event liquor license and/or get permission from the building management company. You must use a licensed bartending service that meets ASU's liquor liability insurance minimums.
If you are hosting a public event that involves the sale or service of alcohol in a public space, a state and city alcohol permit may be required.
