Whether you are planning a wedding, family reunion, or holiday party, make sure your family and guests are safe during your next big event by hiring a licensed caterer. Food that is not properly prepared, transported, and served can lead to food poisoning (technically called foodborne illness) — an unhappy ending to any special event.
Licensed caterers must:
- Have a catering permit that is separate from their restaurant permit
- Prepare food in a kitchen that is approved and regularly inspected by the Snohomish Health District
- Be trained to handle food safely
- Have the proper equipment to prepare and transport food safely
For questions on whether a caterer is permitted, please contact the Food Safety Program at 425.339.5250.
