Food Hygiene

If you are planning to have food at your event there are a couple of things you need to think about. If you are planning on providing homemade food for your members, at least one member of your society must have a food hygiene certificate. This person can then oversee the making of the food which is made to be served. If the food is hot you must be able to keep the food at a specific temperature- we can provide thermometers if needs be. To gain a food hygiene certificate please email activities@leeds.ac.uk with your full name, email address, student number and society name.

Before your event you must supply the following to unijbar@leeds.ac.uk 7 days before-

  • Copy of the food hygiene training and certification of staff serving the food
  • Copy of the menu
  • Copy of the risk assessment for the preparation, cooking and service of food
  • A method statement for the service of food
  • Details of where and when the food will be served within LUU (time, date and place)
