Pre-Ordered lunches

Can anyone let me know how the pre-ordered meals worked this year? We opted out of them this year, due to the mold and the number of team members that got sick from them last year. But, a lot of feedback was provided to them, and I am wondering if there were improvements this year? I forgot to ask around about this, and it would be good to know for future events. Were they any better than last year? Thanks!

Re: Pre-Ordered lunches

This year was different--more things served family-style. I wasn't wild about the pizza (you could tell it was sitting a minute), but everything else was good to me and went without complaints from the rest.

Re: Pre-Ordered lunches

We got 10 sandwich lunches each day, just for the pit crew.

They were pretty good, and a good deal compared to other prices.

I think we had a sandwich, bottle of water, chips and cookie / brownie each day.

We may do these for the whole team next year just to be sure the kids get something decent during the day.

Re: Pre-Ordered lunches

Thanks! I meant to ask and check on it at worlds. It certainly is easier to use pre-order lunches, just couldn't do it after last year. Our drivers had a hard time eating on Saturday though, since we couldn't bring the lunches we ordered them into the arena. So, ordering for drive team at least is probably a good idea!

Re: Pre-Ordered lunches

I went in worrying about mold because of what I read here on CD...

But when we got there I was pleasantly surprised, I did not find one sandwich or family style lunch with mold on it! From what I understand they changed caterers from last year. The only problem we had was the last day they ran out of marinara sauce and when they finally brought it for us it was cold. The caterer apologized and promised that she would make sure it never happened again.

Re: Pre-Ordered lunches

Debbie - we were fortunate to have the money to pre-order all of our meals for our team. The meals were all fine. There was plenty of food for us and most of the time, extra food. We ordered the 4 of the "team pack" each day. We will do this again next year when we qualify to attend.

Yea! No Mold!! I thought the caterer was the same. I looked it up and was going to order if they switched. But, maybe I was looking at the wrong thing. Glad everything was good.

It is so much easier to order food onsite. I'm glad to hear this. I think I will give it another shot next year if we are lucky enough to qualify! Thanks!!

Re: Pre-Ordered lunches

The only thing that I noticed about the lunches, was that the veggie wrap was a little soggy. The sandwiches/cookies really hit the spot though

Re: Pre-Ordered lunches

A side benefit for ordering lunches for the whole team was that we all got together and ate at the same time. Our two teachers went and picked up the food and then we ate. It created a fun and social time where scouting and pit could hang out together.

The food itself was just fine, as convention center food goes.

Re: Pre-Ordered lunches

The food was much better than last year but of course, I am the one that had the pink chicken sandwich.... but other than that, much better than last year.

Re: Pre-Ordered lunches

My team didn't like the lunches last year, so we opted for Jimmie John sandwiches and provided water. It also meant the team had to eat outside. this was the same price as the pre-ordered lunches. I think that was an option that worked well, although platters were ordered of different sandwiches, so if you were last, you got whatever was left over !

The best pre-ordered lunches we have had so far were at the Spokane Regional...lots of variety (5 different sandwiches and 3 different salads) and plenty to eat.

Thanks!

Re: Pre-Ordered lunches

We didn't opt to get them, but some members of other teams had them and they looked decent enough.

But I have to admit, I had possibly the greatest hamburger and fries that I've ever had in the stadium. It was seriously incredibly delicious.

Yeah, we split up and ate around the city one day, went to the spaghetti factory another day (too fast though) and then we had a catered box lunch on the sidewalk. Weather permitting they were all good options except next time I will do the spaghetti sometime when we can enjoy it more.
