Football Concession Stand
Each fall for all of the PSU home football games, our church staffs a concession stand in the Penn State football stadium. Approximately 20 volunteers arrive at Beaver Stadium two hours or more before the game, cook and sell sandwiches, snacks and beverages during the game, count final inventories and clean up afterward. The church benefits by receiving 13% of the total sales from our stand.
Penn State requires that concession stand workers be at least 16 years old. Volunteers are expected to maintain good food safety practices. Cooks preparing sandwiches, fries and pretzels should wear gloves available in the stand. Workers should carefully distinguish between inventory and non-inventory items in the concession stand. Each volunteer is allowed to eat one sandwich (inventory item) during the game. Other, non-inventory items like French fries, popcorn, or soft drinks in personal or courtesy cups are available for snacking as well.
Admission tickets are provided and parking passes are available. Some car pooling is necessary since we are allotted about 1 parking pass for two concession stand volunteers. On game day volunteers enter the stadium through the Employee Entrance near gate E. To enter, you must have a ticket and a photo ID. Proof of age may be required of younger volunteers. Carry-in items are restricted the same as for all others entering Beaver Stadium. For security reasons, things like purses, backpacks and umbrellas are not allowed. The general guideline is to put carry-in items in a 1 gallon clear plastic bag. If there is an excluded item that you need to have in the stand for the game you may contact Ed Mills during the week before the game to arrange for taking it into the Stadium before Friday.
