Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need a food waiver?
BASC is the sole campus entity licensed for food services at The College at Brockport. Through obtaining appropriate documentation from groups/individuals via the food waiver process, BASC is helping ensure that all foods served on campus are safe, and that legal responsbility for the food is cited accordingly.
What is the process for obtaining a food waiver?

- Are home prepared foods allowed on campus for sale or giveaway?
Home prepared foods are only permitted when consumption of the foods will take place within a specific campus department or club gathering of twenty people or less.
