If you donít want to operate the oven at their event, you can hire staff at your own cost to operate the oven.

If food will be served and/or sold to members of the public, you must meet all safe food preparation and handling requirements set out by Toronto Public Health. Insurance

Applicants must have general liability insurance naming the City of Toronto as an additional insured, with a minimum of $2 million coverage. If the applicant does not have this insurance, they may be able to purchase coverage through the Parks, Forestry and Recreation Customer Service Unit.
