Food is a critical component of every ARCC program. As a result, we spend a great deal of time on food selection and preparation to ensure a delicious and well-balanced menu. The food varies from program to program, but on all programs, students will have delicious, healthy and filling meals and a variety of snacks between meals.
Depending on program location, groups have the option to make their own meals, eat in restaurants, small hotels/guesthouses or in the local communities. When possible we strive for our students to be involved in the cooking process. In these cases, students are divided into cook groups which are then responsible for the selection, preparation, and cleanup of the group’s meals. The food we provide is selected with an emphasis on freshness and variety. We always make sure to have extra food to ensure that no one is hungry. Vegetarian and other diets can generally be accommodated.
