Preparing and supplying food

Clubs and Societies are unable to prepare or distribute food to members or students of the University of Southampton. SUSU follow Food Safety guidelines implemented by the Local Authority and the Food Standards Agency. As SUSU cannot regulate how you prepare, store, and distribute food, we, therefore, are unable to allow Clubs or Societies to facilitate this. If your event requires food, please contact your relevant Co-ordinator to discuss how SUSU could support you with this.

The exception to this are Charity Bake sales. If you plan on holding a Charity Bake Sale please contact to discuss your event in further detail. For those holding a Charity Bake Sale we require society members baking or serving food to hold a Level 2 Food Hygiene Certificate.

SUSU Learning can register students on a Level 2 Food Hygiene e-learning course for free. The content of this course is is RoSPA approved (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents).  Students wishing to access this course need to email their details (full name, student email, student ID) to
