Huntington County 4-H Robotics
With our Build Season open shop hours being 4:30pm- 8:30pm, Monday thru Friday, we like to take a dinner break together as a team. If our families all pitch in to help out by bringing dinner for the team a couple times throughout the season, this works out great. To estimate how many people to serve on your night, you may use the numbers below as a rough guideline, but a great way to see how many people are at the shop is by looking at the Time Card that we all use to sign in and out each evening. If everyone remembers to sign in, it will tell you exactly how many are at the shop. Another planning tool could be to look at our Team Snap app. If team members will all check their availability in the app, that would work great, as well.
Past attendance estimates
Mon – 55-65 people
Tue – 55-65 people
Wed – 45-55 people
Thu – 55-65 people
Fri – 45-55 people
NOTE: When you sign up, please leave a comment as to what you plan on making so other meal providers know not to bring the same thing twice in a row.
**ALSO VERY IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE**: Please DO NOT BRING items containing any type of NUT or items that have been cooked in PEANUT OIL, as we have team member(s) with allergies.
Plates, silverware, and cups are provided, so you do not have to bring those items. We will have canned pop available for purchase in our team refrigerator and are looking into getting bottled water donated again this year, but if you'd like to bring drinks along with your meal, that is greatly appreciated as well. Things like Hawaiian Punch or tea or lemonade etc. are good choices.
Here are some ideas of what you could make when it's your turn to provide food for the team:
- Hotdogs/chili dogs/brats
- Sloppy Joes or BBQ sandwiches
- Crock-pots of chili, macaroni & cheese, vegetable soup, etc.
- Fried chicken - At least 2 pieces per person
- Pastas such as Lasagna, Spaghetti and garlic toast
- Pizza - At least 3-4 slices per person
- Party platter of subs from Subway, etc.
- Sides like fresh baby carrots, grapes, potato salad, cole slaw, and baked beans are good.
- Breakfast food, such as waffles, pancakes, biscuits & gravy also go over very well.
- While it is not possible to please everyone, try to choose foods that have mass appeal.
We plan our evenings around taking a dinner break around 6:00pm, so if you could have dinner at the Learning Center by 5:45pm, that would be awesome.
If you have any questions, please contact Lori Elston.
