The Food Court is located straight ahead as you come into the doors of the Athletic Field House. The Kansas Department of Agriculture has strict guidelines for food safety. The State requires us to follow guidelines listed for temporary food establishments. We must be in compliance with the Kansas Food Code. To this end students enrolled in Nutrition and Microbiology classes at the college have been assigned to monitor the rules using thermometers to check appropriate food temperatures and proper aseptic technique.
The following rules apply:
Remember foodborne illness is not a menu item! Enjoy the Festival.
