Special-Diet Meals

Please be aware that if you register after Wednesday, September 16, special-diet meals will not be available for you.

All catering is arranged in advance, with final catering numbers given to the caterers at least seven days before the event. We always order extra special-diet meals, but these are given out on a first-come first-served basis. If you have severe restrictions and are registering after Sept. 16, please email Robin Smith and we’ll try to accommodate your needs, but we can’t promise to succeed.

Register early to avoid dietary difficulties!

SEJ will make every effort to accommodate special dietary needs. However, we can’t guarantee that your needs will be met for every meal. Please approach all meals with your usual caution.
