Of the 231 CU personnel who were responsible for overseeing student-led food eventsreceiving the questionnaire, 75 personnel provided information about current food safety policies and procedures at their institutions. The findings of this study could influence the development of a guidance document about food safety policies and procedures for student-led food events.
