Campus Dining Policy

Campus Dining Policy (Currently under review)

This policy is intended to clearly communicate to all campus stakeholders, the regulations relating to serving and providing food on the Bishop’s University campus and to ensure that only food prepared and served safely and that complies with all provincial regulations is available at events on campus.

Potlucks applications must be received two weeks in advance to ensure that there is time to coordinate all necessary arrangements. Individual groups are responsible for reserving the space for their potluck according to the guidelines outlined in Appendix 3 Organizing Potlucks on Campus of the Campus Dining Policy.

For fundraising bake sales, applications must be submitted three days in advance for approval.
