Catering Requests

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and Laboratory Services, the following regulations are mandated:
“All food should be prepared only at the event/location/kitchen. Preparing and transporting food made at home and brought to the event location can be dangerous. The chances of bacteria multiplying in the food increases with each step in the food preparation chain. This can lead to food borne illness.”

Due to this regulation and to assure the safety of all parties involved, the Greencastle-Antrim School District Food Service Department cannot accept donated foods or food brought in from an unapproved outside source for special catering events. All food items that the Food Service Department is responsible for preparing must be approved and ordered by the Food Service Director. This is to ensure that the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) was adhered to in the delivery and storage of the food items.
 
Please download the Catering Request Form at right and email the completed form to nfoust@gcasd.org. To ensure the delivery of the food, requests for special events must be received four (4) weeks in advance of the event.

Requests for menu changes (bagged lunch) need to be received six (6) weeks in advance. This ensures time to change the menu week to meet new regulations. Your one-day change can affect what is served the rest of the week because of nutrient content. Please feel free to contact our office with any questions.
