As you all know, I am a quilter and not so much a cook. Therefore, my retreat center doesn't provide meals. In my travelling around trying to spread the word about this great retreat place, food being provided seems to be a really big deal. I've been retreating for several years with various groups and we have always coordinated our food so providing food has really never been on my list of things to provide. However, I have a very dear friend who is also an excellent cook and she has agreed to provide a menu of meal options for those who would like to have meals provided at the retreat. There will be an additional cost of course and my survey question is, would you be more likely to book a retreat if food being provided is an option?
Our thoughts are.....not quite set in stone yet but tentatively.....When you book your retreat you will have the option of with food or bring your own food. If you choose with food, you will be provided with a menu of items to select from. For a typical stay (3 days, 2 nights) you will select three meals from the list along with two desserts, ( i.e., Friday evening, Saturday Lunch & Supper) you will be on your own for breakfast. There should be enough leftovers for a brunch on Sunday. The food will be at the center when you arrive and you can heat and eat on your own schedule. The cost for food for the stay will be an additional charge of $55.00 per person. If you stay is longer, it will be an additional $15.00 per day per person and would provide you with an additional lunch and evening meal.
So the question is food or no food and if you want to provide any comments on desired menu items that would also be appreciated!!!
