Special Event Application


Throughout the Grey Bruce region, there are many special or community events that involve serving food to the public.  In some cases, these special events serve food to hundreds of people.  Food that is improperly prepared can cause illness, and in some cases, serious complications or even death.


The Grey Bruce Health Unit role is to make sure that the public is protected from food-borne illnesses.  We want to ensure that food is prepared safely and that the event goes ahead in a way that protects the people being served.  To achieve this goal, we ask that people planning events involving serving food to the public fill out an application.  This way, we can help you reduce the risk of food-borne illness in the people you are serving.
