Operation of Bellevue College’s food services is authorized by state law (RCW 28B.50.140(5)). The purpose of food services is to provide healthful, readily-available, reasonably-priced food and beverages for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to the campus. The director of food services is responsible for ensuring that food prepared on the college premises is safe for public consumption and meets all state licensing requirements. As a result outside parties may not use any food services facilities or equipment as this may potentially compromise food safety.

Any opportunity for food services on the Bellevue College campus must be offered to the Bellevue College food services director prior to arrangement to cater food from an outside vendor, including refreshments and/or beverages for all campus events, unless food services director has been notified of the arrangement.

Campus vending and their proceeds are coordinated by the director of food services.

Recognized student organizations may sell or dispense food on campus, provided such sale or dispensing is in accord with guidelines established in the student club event planning manual.

Complimentary food items may be provided by Bellevue College employees for sharing with their co-workers.
