Special Event Information: Food Trucks

The authorization to use Food Trucks for a Special Event is tied to the campus Special Events process.

  2. Request approval for a catered event that features food trucks, to be approved by the Food Services Director. Contact Frank Henry at fhenry@ou.edu to obtain approval.

  3. If approved, Food Services Administration will provide a current list of approved food trucks and a Special Events Food Truck Scheduling Agreement.

  4. If event coordinators want to use a food truck that is not listed, the food truck must complete the registration process (details below) and be added to the list of approved food trucks prior to the event date. New food truck registrations typically take around four weeks to complete.

  5. Complete the Scheduling Agreement form between the food truck(s) and event coordinator.
