Arizona State University departments and registered student organizations must use authorized catering service for on-campus events. Due to liability issues it is imperative that individuals representing ASU through University functions ensure that all risk management concerns are addressed by securing approved catering services as outlined in the following information. ASU funds may not be spent to purchase food from businesses not contracted with ASU or on the Approved Food Providers List.
