As any planner or food provider knows, food and beverage is a risky area.  Beyond keeping hot food hot and cold food cold, there are liability issues related to dietary restrictions, food allergies, foodborne illness, alcohol, and more. 

In this session, we discuss the legalities behind food and beverage service.  From contract language that every planner should include in catering contracts regarding who shoulders the lion’s share of liability and fair performance clauses to leveraging the law to get restaurants, caterers, and hotels to donate food to minimize food waste in a country that sees 1 in 8 people face food insecurity, this is the law of food.

Learning Objectives:
Define service standards that will not only improve the quality of     service, but reduce the risk of liability.
Evaluate due diligence when dealing with ADA issues, including food allergies.

3. Clarify the responsibilities and opportunities under the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act.
