What type of food is served for lunch at the TOT?

For TOTs held in Philadelphia, we also include lunch from local businesses on each of the 3 training days.  Our menu varies from training to training, but we make it a point to provide options for people who practice vegetarian, vegan and gluten free diets.*  We also provide snacks such as fruit, yogurts, granola bars, chips, cookies and the occasional candy. We generally try to provide organic snacks when feasible. We always have a supply of filtered water, flavored sparkling waters, coffee, and tea on hand, as well as dairy and non-dairy creamers.

FYI – While we are  generally able to accommodate some food allergies, those with severe allergies are encouraged to consider bringing their own food, as TTI cannot be held liable for any allergens that may be present in the food.  

Here is our most recent menu for the three days as an example:

Day 1:  Mediterranean (From Hummus)
Hummus, falafel, grape leaves, cabbage salad, Turkish salad, Moroccan potato cigars, tabouli, chicken kabobs, beef kabobs, pita and gluten free bread.  (Minus the kabobs, all of the food is vegetarian/vegan friendly.)  
Day 2: Indian (From New Delhi)
Vegetable samosas, basmati rice, naan, salad and your choice of channa masala (veg), gobi masala (vegan), and/or chicken curry.  Everything except the chicken curry is vegetarian, and all but the channa masala and curry are vegan.
Day 3:  Mexican (From Honest Tom’s)
Build your own taco bar, and, build your own nacho bar.  Options include: flour or corn tortillas, sweet potatoes, grilled veggies, pork, chicken, vegetarian black beans, rice, queso fresco, pickled jalapenos, vegetarian black bean sauce, pico de gallo, chipotle sour cream, guacamole and Honest Tom’s own line of hot sauces.
