Q. What if my child has allergies?
A. Please list your child’s food allergies on the participant registration form. This will allow the registration team to make note of the allergy, and they will notify the snack team. As a rule, we will not serve peanut butter; however, if your child has allergies we suggest you take a look at the ingredient labels and provide an alternate snack if we are serving something to which they are allergic. Ingredient labels will be on hand in the main kitchen for parents to review.
