Fundraising and Community Events
If you intend to sell food at a stall or community event to raise funds for an organisation, group or charity, it must be ‘safe and suitable’ to eat – essentially, no one should get sick from eating your food.
Use the Food Safety Toolkit to help you make safe and suitable food.
Selling Food for Fundraising
Less than 20 times a year- you do not have to register with Council if you are selling food. However, you will still need to complete and return the form for selling food at fundraising and community events, to ensure food sold will be ‘safe and suitable’.
20 or more times a year - you are defined as a business under the Food Act 2014 and will register with Council. You may need to adopt a food control plan or national programme. Use the tool to help find out what you may need to do.
A tool to help you with food safety rules
If you have a food business or activity, there are rules you will need to follow. The "My Food Rules" tool will ask questions to help you find out what you need to do.
