Cooking/ Hosting Families

  • We provide breakfast, lunch or both the day of each regatta, pending regatta length, for rowers and families in attendance.
  • We request up to 2 families/4 people to coordinate and prepare each of the planned meals.
  • Cooking/Hosting families are responsible for planning, meal set-up, cooking and meal clean-up that day.
  • Families can sign up via the SignUp Genius link. You will receive a confirmation email with the regatta date and co-hosting families so you can coordinate the details.
  • If you want to cook/host but don’t want to actually plan the meal – simply notify the other families and they will assign something for you to bring/prepare.  Please feel free to email any of the hospitality members and we can also help with getting you information on what the menu is so you can shop/prepare etc.
  • All meals and food must/should be wholesome and nourishing.
  • Food purchased for cooking/hosting are fully reimbursable. Send your receipts to:

Robert Moldoch
Mercy Crew Treasurer
PO Box 10582
Rochester, NY 14610

Donated Food/Drink Items

  • These are an assortment of healthy food items that the rowers “grab and go” before and after rowing.
  • Parents who sign up to bring these food items bring them to each regatta.
  • A list of requested items will be sent for you to sign up to bring via SignUp Genius.
  • You must bring that item to each regatta. If you are not able to attend the regatta, please send your items with another rower or parent.
  • All donated food items must be wholesome and nourishing (healthy).

Meal Headcount

  • A SignUp Genius will also be sent for each regatta requesting a count of how many family members, including your rower, will be attending the regatta to get a count for eating. It is very important to get this number ahead of time enabling us to shop/ plan the meals for the families that have volunteered to host/ cook.
  • Please let the Hospitality Coordinators know if anyone in your family has any type of food allergy.

Hope this helps to clarify hospitality.
