Please re-submit a new space request if the main components of your event are modified.
Lower Risk Foods are foods that pathogens have trouble surviving in because they are drier, have a high sugar or salt content, or are more acidic. These foods do not need to be kept hot or cold. Ex: cakes (except cheesecake or cream/dairy filled cakes), fruit pies, tarts, breads, candies, popcorns, chocolates, fudge, and brownies.
Higher Risk Foods are foods that can support the growth of pathogens and/or foods that have been associated with causing food borne illness. These foods must be kept and served hot or cold. Ex: cheesecake, pumpkin and meringue pies, frostings or fillings with cream cheese, custards, whipped cream or cheese, meats and dairies.
