Information for community groups selling food to raise funds

Community groups often hold fundraising activities that involve the sale of food such as sausage sizzles, cake stalls and fetes. These activities require a food act registration or notification.

Common examples of community groups who register with their local council include:

  • Community groups conducting sausage sizzles or cake stalls
  • Community groups selling food at markets or festivals
  • Community groups cooking and selling food from a food truck or trailer
  • Schools holding fetes or festivals
  • Individuals selling food to raise funds for charity.
