Food and Dietary Requests
ATD-LA volunteers do not have access to kitchens or food services. The ATD-LA office will hand off your request to the catering manager. Therefore, you must make requests to the catering manager or designate on your registration form where offered. The catering team will use reasonable efforts to accommodate your request through the preparation and handling processes.
However, it is ultimately up to the you to use individual discretion to make an informed choice regarding whether to consume any particular items or its substitution. Should you need to address any further dietary concerns, please meet with the catering liaison.
ATD-LA negotiates a group volume rate per person for larger catered events and most events held at hotels. Hotels typically require a minimum headcount. If you come an event that included a meal (food and/or beverage) that you didn't consume, we are unable to prorate or refund your registration. Some special dietary requests may result in an additonal fee by the vendor and will be passed-on to the requestor.
