Any chapter volunteering to purchase, cook and serve either a breakfast or dinner at a State Meeting or Rally will be paid $10.00 for breakfast and $15.00 for dinner based on the number of registered members and guests. The chapter should contact the Treasurer before they purchase food to determine the number of people they will need to serve.
A Food Coordinator will be appointed by the President. The chapter preparing the food will send their menus to the coordinator before any food is purchased. The Food Coordinator will determine if the menus from all chapters provide a varied menu for each scheduled meal at an outing. The Coordinator may or may not change each year. The registration form for meetings and the rally will be asking for any special dietary restrictions such as diabetics and gluten sensitivities. These will be passed on to the Chapters making meals, so they can make some adjustments for the entrée for those specific members.
The 1st Vice President will inform the Food Coordinator what the kitchen facilities are at the camping venue at least two weeks before the event. The Food Coordinator will contact the chapters that will be cooking regarding what is available in the way of refrigerators, stoves, ovens, and freezers, so they will have that information when selecting their menu.
The chapters preparing meals must bring their own pots, pans, serving trays, etc. If the Chapter needs any of these items the Food Coordinator or other Chapters may be able to assist. Several members have roasters, etc.
All Chapters preparing meals must be prepared to clean up the kitchen and service area they used. Bring dish soap, scrubber, dish towels, paper towels, measuring cups and serving utensils.
Club members should furnish their own table service for each meal including a dinner plate, salad plate, a small bowl, flatware and napkins and coffee cups if the Chapter is providing coffee with breakfast. The Chapter providing the meal may choose to provide some of these items.
All food prepared and served must be consumed on dining preemies or meeting room. No food should be taken back to rigs except for someone who is sick or disabled.
