For an individual to get the proper permits, insurance etc to set up a legal food vending booth for one event is a lot of work and expense.
One spiritual entity with a bad case of the trots could ruin your life!
Yes, you must get the permits, insurance, and jump through your city's hoops. In the chili cook-off held in my town every year, the chili has to be cooked in a kitchen approved by the local health inspectors, with all ingredients listed, and where they were purchased, how they were cooked and prepared, what temp they were cooked to, how they were stored and at what temperature, how they were reheated, and finally, the pot of chili is tested with electronic thermometers on site before the public is admitted.
As was said, all it takes is one person who gets sick while eating your chili. They could even get it by eating at some other establishment, and then eat your chili. Law suits can ruin you. This is why a line from the band Metallica rings true - "Sad but True". There are things done in our society that break my heart.
