If you are preparing, selling or serving food at a community event or for fundraising the food must be prepared safely and be suitable to eat. Most people preparing and selling food at community events do not need to register with NPDC but we recommend using the My Food Rules tool on the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) website to make sure you do follow any necessary rules or requirements.
Even if you do not need to register it is still very important that all food is suitably prepared and safe to eat. MPI manages food safety requirements and have fact sheets on their website that will help you follow safe food practices.
