Catering with Approved Off-Campus Vendors

The UWO campus dining contracted vendor, Aladdin Food & Services Management, has exclusive rights to provide food service and catering for each UW Oshkosh campus. The amount your office or organization intends to spend is the first step in determining what is needed for your event approvals:

A)

If individuals or organizations would prefer not to use Aladdin for small catering on university property at of cost less than $200, and bring food and supplies from off-campus, they must choose a vendor from the approved vendor list below (no alcohol purchases).

You MUST check with the vendor prior to purchase if you intend to pay them using a Meal Requisition form. Some vendors will allow you to charge using a Meal Requisition form while others do not. The approved vendor list below will indicate vendors that currently accept the Meal Requisition Form.

B)

If you need to spend more than $200, or use a vendor not on the list, you are required to submit the Campus Food Waiver Request at least fourteen (14) days in advance of the event for approval. If approved, you will receive an official waiver from the Aladdin.

Note – Payments to multiple vendors for the same event are cumulative toward the $200 limit.

Pandemic Reminders for Catering as of August 2021:

Catering continues to be available. Aladdin is approved to serve buffets and picnics also.

Aladdin will:

  • Ensure all their staff are following UWO vaccinations and pandemic guidance
  • Rotate service utensils during staffed buffets or provide additional service tools for drop off buffets
  • Work to accommodate special menus and requests to be as safe as possible

Group hosting the event must:

  • Provide sanitizer for guests at the food lines
  • Communicate with guests University protocols on vaccinations, face coverings and all other pandemic-related information
  • Work with Aladdin to have a sign on buffets reminding guests of the above

Any off-campus approved vendor will be expected to follow the same expectations.

Policy Details

This policy is limited to catered and donated food for meetings and events only. Groups wanting to re-sell food must adhere to the campus catering guidelines for fundraising and re-sale.

Exceptions to the use of Aladdin for food needs on campus may be considered by submitting a Campus Food Waiver Request. Foods may not be comingled with food supplied by Aladdin.

Donated foods may be used for student benefit only. Any exception to this policy must be approved in advance by University Dining as there are agreements with off-campus vendors to support campus and students which must be honored. Any requests must be vetted through University Dining for compliance with agreements.

Donated food from sources other than the approved vendor list may be used with prior approval from the Assistant Director for University Dining. This request to use donated food must be sent to food@uwosh.edu at least fourteen (14) days prior to the event.

  • The total retail value of the donated food may not exceed $200 without a food waiver.
  • All food purchases that will be reimbursed via a UWO account must complete the meal requisition or personal reimbursement process.
  • Donated food may not be served alongside items from the Aladdin catering department for liability reasons.
  • Raw meats, eggs, and other potentially hazardous food items may not be used or purchased from Off-Campus Food Providers. In some cases, these items can be purchased pre-cooked and may be allowed by contacting University Dining.

All approved off-campus vendors must submit insurance verification:

  • It is the intention of Risk Management to have each approved off-campus vender and any other vendors donating or supplying food on campus produce a copy of their Certificate of Insurance with the University named as an additional insured.
  • The minimum Standard Limits (vs. High Risk Services):
