UWF Catering Policy

Providing Food and Drinks

Student Organizations may wish and are encouraged to provide food/drinks at their events and/or meetings. There are four ways for organizations to provide food/drinks to their members and/or participants:

  • Catered by University Dining Services, currently Aramark
  • Catered by an approved caterer other than University Dining Services (except within the University Commons)
  • Prepared by the sponsor
  • Purchased from an approved off-campus source and either picked up or delivered but not catered (i.e., setup, served and removed)

Catering Restrictions

Off-campus vendors may deliver food/drink orders or the order may be picked up by student organization members. Catering is the act of setup, serving and removing and must be done by student organization members or University of West Florida Dining Services.

NOTE: Off-campus vendors may not set up or serve food/drinks unless approved to do so.
