HEALTH PERMIT INFO You must apply for a health permit & be inspected if: *You will be cooking/serving food to large groups of more than 125 CAMPERS consistently. (If you have a communal kitchen shared by 125 or more but meals are prepared individually or in smaller quantities for < 125 persons a permit is not required but we highly recommend you research and review food safety starting with the NSHD information). *You wish to share, cook or serve food or non-alcoholic beverages to the general Burning Man population (gifting food). Permit procedures & deadlines: If you have already applied for a permit you should be receiving instructions in the mail. If you are planning to give away food/drinks to the public on the playa including fresh squeezed juice, coffee with dairy or even snow cones you need a permit. Here's the scoop from Cindy Ulch Supervisor with the NSHD Environmental Health Program: The only application any camp needs is the "Food Permit Application for Burning Man" found here: http://health.nv.gov/BFHS_EHS.htm Find the flame icon at the bottom of the website for this application and other food safety info.
