    Light snacks & personal beverages (pastries, fruit, cookies, bottled water & sealed beverage containers) are permitted without incurring a fee, but only when the department or the attendees  bring these items into the rooms, and ensure that any leftovers are removed and spills cleaned up after their sessions. When making a reservation request, please let us know whether you or your attendees plan on bringing in light snacks or if you plan on scheduling a delivery of food for your session.
