Charitable Organisations and Fetes  Printer Friendly

Some concessions are given to charitable organisations and fetes particularly where the event occurs rarely and where profit is considered low.

These organisations are still required to have at least one person trained in food handling techniques who must be available at the stall/function to give advice and instruction. Each stall holder must complete a statement of trade (temporary food premises application) (no fee applicable) and return it to the Council Health Department (2 Rae St, Colac 3250) at least 7 days before the event.

Council officers will assess the application and send out an appropriate food safety advice concerning the event or stall.

If you are providing food to a private function such as a church social you must note that you still have a duty of care to provide safe food to your patrons whether or not you are charging for the food. Liability for gross negligence still applies. It is recommended that you obtain food safety information from Council - Phone: (03) 5232 9429 - so that your associates are informed and protected.
