On Red Rope trips we normally plan the catering as a group, and buy everything that’s needed for breakfasts, the Saturday evening meal, and packed lunches. Trips longer than a weekend need to plan for more evening meals and days.
When you go on a trip, the cost of food is included in the charge. Walking and climbing make you hungrry and we make sure there’s plenty to eat! Breakfast is normally help-yourself, and there’ll be ingredients for a packed lunch. People volunteer to help with the evening meal.
Doing food as a group generally works out cheaper for everyone, but we try to cater for individual needs.
The policy is to eat vegetarian, but groups sometimes decide to do this differently.
