The Parent’s Summit is a full-day event, and parents are notoriously ravenous, hungry and thirsty people. How can you provide snacks, beverages and hospitality to make this a great event? Donuts, snacks during breaks, fresh fruit, water and coffee are all things to consider.
Answers to this question will effect your budgeted amount, as well as prep needs and volunteer needs. If you decide to provide coffee, you’ll need to factor that into your volunteer needs.
There are likely organizations or businesses in your community who might be willing to provide some of these services for free or for a discounted rate. Do you have a coffee shop in town? They very well might provide coffee for your event free of charge.
