By Sharon Robberson he main eating venue for delegates and visitors to the session will be the food outlets organized by session management. Here are the facts:
Location: GEORGIA WORLD CONGRESS CENTER, BUILDING C, lower level, Hall C 1 & 2
LUNCH daily. Serving time noon to 1:15 p.m.; SUPPER: 5:00-6:15 p.m. Open to all ticketed delegates, staff, and visitors. Meal tickets may be purchased on a limited basis on-site at the Food Service kiosk located outside the dining hall.
Daily menus are posted on the session Web site for your convenience. Go to www.gcsession.org. There is a variety of vegetarian options, ethnically oriented cuisine, vegan dishes, seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables, whole-grain breads, homemade (in-house pastry chef) desserts. Meals will be simple, fresh, and visually appealing. Service will be buffet-style (one trip, please).
Delegates and staff have a separate entrance, separate lines, and their own seating area. However, we will do our utmost to serve all guests efficiently for their convenience and pleasure.
Tickets are required to enter the dining hall, and no food can leave the dining hall. (No exceptions.)
Meal tickets may be available for advance ticket purchase, but not during major meal functions. Tickets may be purchased as late as two days in advance, but these will be extremely limited.
Tickets purchased three days or more in advance stand a better chance of being honored. Tickets are $16 each—not transferable and nonrefundable. Cash and credit cards will be accepted for ticket purchase. (No checks)
All food is prepared on-site and we will not run out! The last person through line will have the very same meal as the first person! That’s a guarantee!
Food World, also in the World Congress Center complex, will operate independently of the Dining Hall. It will carry a variety of options, including sandwiches, whole fruit, breakfast items, pizza, pasta, Asian cuisine, drinks, etc. Meal tickets cannot be used, only cash or credit cards.
