What is Juneteenth? Juneteenth or June 19, 1865, is considered the date when the last slaves in America were freed. Although the rumors of freedom were widespread prior to this, actual emancipation did not come until General Gordon Granger rode into Galveston, Texas and issued General Order No. 3, on June 19th, almost two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.

Food Vendors,

Vendors that will be selling food items such as BBQ, Fish, Nachos, Italian Ice etc. you must fill out the Non Profit Temporary Food Permit. This form must be completed and sent to the Cobb Center for Environmental Health Dept. by Friday, June 3, 2013 (NO EXCEPTIONS. Upon receipt of the form the health dept will issue temporary permits to all vendors on the day of the event. They will come around to make sure all necessary safety and sanitizing implementations are in place before they give you your permit.

Located above is a checklist for food vendors to use in setting up their prospective stations.

The Fire Department will also be walking around as they did last year checking each food vendor utilizing "open flames" for cooking. If you are using open flames you must have a small working fire extinguisher. If you do not have a working fire extinguisher you will not be issued your food permit the day of the event.

Send your Temporary Food Permit to the Health Department but your Juneteenth application and a copy of your Food Permit Application needs to be sent to the Cobb County NAACP office.
