Boxed lunches will be available for participants at the AFS Annual Meeting in Santa Fe, but only by preorder.
Every year, we try to arrange cash and carry lunch options at our meeting sites, so that participants in AFS Section business meetings can concentrate on business, not procuring food. However, most meeting caterers resist, or outright refuse, reporting that this is a money-losing proposition for them.
Our compromise this year is to offer boxed lunches for advance sale, so Section members can find food quickly, and the caterer can control cost by preparing only as many lunches as will be required. No lunches will be sold at the Convention Center in Santa Fe.
Buy your lunch for Thursday, Friday and/or Saturday by October 26, then pick it up in the Convention Center lobby before your meeting. Go to the AFS online store to order.
