Clayton County Environmental Health does not issue permits to or inspect any non-profit events. Even though we do not issue permits to these events we do require that you register with our office so we may provide you with important guidelines regarding food safety. Below are the procedures that you will need to follow in order to register your event with our office.
A non-profit organization is an organization in which profits are not sought and any money made is used to benefit the cause that the organization is supporting. The exemptions stated in the code are as follows: Sponsored by a political subdivision of this state or by an organization exempt from taxes under paragraph (1) of subsection (a) of Code Section 48-7-25 or under Section 501(d) or paragraphs (1) through (8) or paragraph (10) of section 501(c) of the Internal Revenue Code as that code is defined in Code Section 48-1-2; lasts 120 hours or less; and when sponsored by such an organization, is authorized to be conducted pursuant to a permit issued by the municipality or county in which it is conducted.
If you are found to be operating without first registering your event with our office or not getting a Special Event/Temporary Food Service permit you will be subject to closure and/or administrative action.
