Organizing an event?
Need a short-term food permit?
Are you organizing an event in Minneapolis where food and/or beverages will be sold or given away?
A short-term food permit may be required.
As the organizer, you must submit your own Event Food Sponsor Permit application and fee, along with all Short-Term Food Permit applications and fees TOGETHER – AT LEAST 10 BUSINESS DAYS BEFORE THE EVENT. It is the responsibility of the Event Food Sponsor to do this.
If you will be selling or giving away food and/or beverages at an event, provide your Short-Term Food Permit application and fees (or your Seasonal Food Permit number) directly to the Event Food Sponsor, well in advance of the event – so the Sponsor can submit all applications together at least 10 business days before the event.

The Minneapolis Health Department will be hosting another community forum for food establishments to provide comments about the proposed language in the fall.
Watch for more information. In the meantime, you can submit comments or questions to the Minnesota Department of Health here.
Problemas mas comunes con las inspeciones
Justo Garcia and Edwardo Mardones, bilingual Health Inspectors, conducted a four hour training titled, “Most Common Problems Associated with Food Services Inspections” on June 8, 2015.
The training was conducted entirely in Spanish. The training was tailored to front line staff that works in Latino owned restaurant or establishments with large number of Latino employees.
Interactive activities focused primarily on the most common critical violations such as hand washing, cooling, cross contamination, illness reporting and others. Thirty-three (33) participants from 13 different facilities attended the training. A certificate of completion was awarded to each participant.
