Meals and Other Essentials

We work hard to establish a local coffee sponsor to sustain participants’ caffeine levels. However meals are the responsibility of participants. A guide of local eateries, grocery and convenience stores will be provided to you upon arrival at your first workshop. A digital copy of this guide will also be made available on our website.
