Furry Picnic Food
We want to have a lot of food, so let’s get that menu started! We’ll be adding more items and refining the menu before the event, so check back often.
Vegetarians, vegans, the folks that usually go hungry at picnics, or are forced to eat junk food – fear not! We’ll be making sure there’s plenty to eat. We’ll be watching out for shortening, honey, rennet types, eggs, milk, gelatin, additives, and other tricky animal ingredients to make sure the food is top notch for you.

All attendees contributing potluck offerings must follow basic food safety rules, we also recommend reviewing this – USDA Guide – Basics for Handling Food Safely:
- Please do not prepare food for public consumption if you or anyone in the vicinity of your food preparation area have been sick with stomach bug, flu-like symptoms, or any other illness in the 72 hours prior to preparation.
- Clean and disinfect kitchen utensils, counters, and surfaces before you prepare your dish. Wash fruits and vegetables, and cook all meats thoroughly.
- Keep uncooked & raw meat (such as chicken, pork, beef, fish, and shellfish) separate in its own bag or wrap, and in a sealed container. Do not store with serving utensils or prepared food in case of leakage.
- All food must follow the rule “Cold food stays cold, hot food stays hot.” Your food must be stored in appropriate containers to keep it at the safe serving temperature and prevent contamination or it will be discarded. *Tip – Consider serving your food in several small containers instead of one large container. They are easier to keep hot and cold, and as one portion is eaten or discarded, a fresh portion is ready to go.
- Uneaten food and ‘time/temperature control food’ – food that must be maintained at a certain temperature to prevent spoilage or risk of food-borne illness – will be discarded by staff as necessary.
- All prepared food to share must be labeled “Potluck Food” on the serving container.
- You must provide your own serving dishes and serving utensils. Be sure to label them with your name, including lids, coolers, and carrying bags.
- Please be sure to include index cards listing ingredients to label prepared or store-bought dishes.
- To prevent allergic reactions and ensure food safety, please bring recipes, original packaging, food labels, and lists of ingredients whenever possible.
The Furry Picnic staff reserves the right to refuse or discard any potluck offerings or donations of food or drink for the safety of attendees.
Any food or beverage, perishable or non-perishable, in any container or packaging, in any condition, that is removed from the event, such as ‘leftovers’ or ‘extra’, is not considered safe and is done solely at your own risk.
