Im a vegetarian and have been to many confs... i took pictures of a bunch of my previous badges from confs as "research" for what we might need and noticed quite a few had my dietary requests on them. The rationale being, sometimes ppl wo restrictions eat the special order food and the folks with the restrictions end up with nothing to eat.
How are the food ordering and dietary restrictions being handled (eg bagged lunches and when theyre gone thats it? Or made to order - less of an issue.) We are collecting dietary info in the registration iirc so just wondering what we actually do w it and if we care it's on the badge. If it needs to be on the badge then we can certainly handle discreetly (colored stickers on back placed during reg for example.) If not, we dont plan for it.
The Brewery, and I believe the cruise, are both buffets. The lunches will be handled by the hotel. I agree with Rafal that there is almost no situation where someone should get left without food. I don't think we have enough information to actually predict special needs. The reg form, iirc, only asked about vegetarians. Vegans, Gluten Free, etc. are not counted. Also the number is private and I don't have it. Can someone send it to me please.
Does anybody know the food situation?

One issue we have up front is that we think it's important to include
the "get help" info on the back of the badge. Rochester Flock had Ruth,
Josh, and Tom's cell phone numbers and emails. Are they still the people
to list for help, or are there other people we should be listing as
those who can help?
me to that list, if you don't mind.

Back of Badge Essentials:
- link to sched.org schedule
- "Get Help" info (#flock-help, phone numbers / emails)
- conference website (flocktofedora.org)
to put only flocktofedora.org?

Other possible data to include:
- Meal selection (special dietary needs?)
permanently? I guess the people with special needs will choose whatever
they need, optionally may tell somebody what they want or ask about
ingredients when taking food. Probably no need to show this information
on the badge.
+1 ... speaking as someone who has a dietary restriction, I definitely
prefer keeping it to myself unless it is necessary to discuss it. If the
data was encoded or something (like in a bar code or something) and it
made it easier to "get lunch" that would be fine. But I don't think we
are doing something quite that complicated ;)
Otherwise it's OK.
