Food Service Providers Question's:
Q: How do I obtain the necessary insurance certificates and endorsements?
A: Talk to your insurance agent or broker. To make it really easy provide them with a copy of the CSU Requirements for Caterers and Food Service Providers (pdf) (Word).
Q: What if my insurance agent/broker has questions? Can I have them call Risk Management directly?
A: Yes, by all means! We are happy to talk to your agent/broker and provide any additional information they may need. Our number is (530) 898-6588.
Q: Can my agent include the additional insured information on the certificate of insurance rather than attaching a separate form?
