Food safety for community groups

The State Government has developed a short video and interactive website to help community groups understand and meet their food safety obligations when selling food to raise funds in Victoria.

The video provides an informative insight into community fund-raising activities while the website covers a range of topics, including community group obligations under the Victorian Food Act.

To view the website and video please go to

One of the key features of the website is a simple, interactive decision tree that takes users through a series of questions to arrive at their food premises’ classification.  

After working through the decision tree, event organisers are directed to the appropriate business registration/notification system, depending on their food handling activities.

For example, a food van or stall organiser will be directed to the online Streatrader system.

If you have any questions about the resources on the website, please email:
