Last year we provided a lunch meeting for our main sponsor who provides our build space and a few other visitors. We introduced the robot and the capabilities. Between the company employee’s and our team members we had over 90 people.
For this “lunch and learn” we approached several local establishments. We had nacho chips, salsa and cheese, chicken tenders, Asian noodles, pizza all donated. We did end up providing additional pizza’s, some veggie trays and drinks
All said, we received about $400 in donated food. It was well worth calling on these establishments and we truly appreciated there sponsorship. All of these establishments were listed as sponsors on our banner, recognized on social media and provided year end thank you correspondence.
We rely on parents for Kickoff and full build day lunches. Sometimes we have snacks during the evening builds.
A team could spend their entire budget feeding their members for the entire season.
