Serving At Catapalooza

The Catapalooza staff works closely with the MSU Sanitarian to ensure food safety for any and all people that attend Catapalooza. If you are interested in serving food at Catapalooza, please register for the event and include your plan to serve food.

If you have already registered to serve food or beverages at Catapalooza, our staff will contact you to have you fill out the appropriate forms. If you need extra copies or have misplaced our correspondence, we have posted these forms below.

Reminder: All beverages served must be Pepsi products. The University has a pour rights contract, which provides exclusive distribution of soft drinks, handled by Harrington Pepsi Cola. A list of acceptable products for campus distribution can be found here.

Examples of prepackaged foods include: wrapped candy, bagged chips, gum, ice cream novelties, canned or bottled soda, bottled water, etc. Please do not replace prepackaged wrapping or nutritional information with new or original labels before working with our Sanitarian as there are requirements for what information must be displayed and available for the public.
