We are pleased to offer a Meal Plan pre-purchased ticket for conference attendees in 2014. Our meal plan will begin with Friday dinner and end with Sunday lunch, and will be provided by 3 Suns Organic Kitchen of Tampa, Florida. See the menu for this year's meal plan at the bottom of this page.
3 Suns Organic is a gourmet mobile eatery featuring local, humanely raised, hormone and antibiotic free livestock and organic produce. Our mission is to provide unique, delicious, and sustainable food you can feel good about enjoying.
The weekend's meal plan is an additional cost and can be purchased with your registration. We have a limited number of meal plan tickets but they will be hearty and healthy and we encourage you to register early so you don't miss out! This meal plan is suited for omnivores - Vegans are encouraged to source their meals from our food vendors or bring their own provisions. Meal plan tickets for the weekend are $60 and include Friday dinner through Sunday lunch. We are also offering meal plans for youth ages 3-10 years of age for $35.
You must register for your meal plan by February 15th. REGISTER HERE
In addition to our mealplan tickets, for those who wish to enjoy the weekend without cooking, food at our third annual conference will be provided by some amazing vendors coming from around Florida, including Off the Griddle from Lakeland, Florida and Veggie Love from Fort Pierce, FL. We've chosen these vendors to bring a variety that will fulfill a number of dietary preferences, from vegan and vegetarian to omnivore. These vendors will be sourcing their ingredients as sustainably, organically, and locally as possible. The food vendors will be offering meals for sale Friday dinner to Sunday lunch, and all the meals and snack times in between. We encourage you to bring cash to support them, for easier transactions. Vendors will offer ample vegan/vegetarian fare for attendees desiring a plant-based option. However, you should prepare to bring your own food if you have special dietary considerations.
For those bringing their own food to cook, remember good campfire practices - no digging - above ground pits must be used. Also, remember good storage practices - hungry forest critters will go to great lengths to procure your gourmet organic snacks if left unsecured.
To honor our responsibility for our practices, we will be composting throughout the weekend, thanks to Barefoot Creek. Learn more here.
