Food Service/Conference Rate Meal Plan
Group is advised that no food/beverages may be brought-in or prepared-for general distribution to group.
Conference Rate Meal Plan: Our conference rate “meal plan” provides well-balanced meals for your participants. Cost of the conference rate meal plan, based on three consecutive meals is $25.75 per person/per day. As part of our on-going recruitment incentive, Kent State University offers a special recruitment discount for potential Kent State University Students, (i.e. “youth rate” for high school students and younger), of $23.75 per person/per day. Your meal plan will be adjusted and prorated by meal based upon your beginning and ending meals. Cost of individual meals outside of the package will be provided upon request.
Groups utilizing the conference rate meal plan must provide a breakdown of adults/youths when final count is given. If breakdown is not received the adult rate will be charged for all meal tickets. Groups utilizing meal tickets are advised that extra/leftover meal tickets cannot be returned for refund or credit. Cancellations will be accepted up to 48 hours in advance, after which time group will be held responsible for full meal count and applicable charges for entire length of stay, including any/all no shows. If a meal ticket becomes lost, damaged or stolen please contact your conference coordinator for replacement.
Private/Served Meals: Should you desire a private or served meal your coordinator will be happy to send you a menu packet. Menu selections for any private meals are due one month prior to the event. Your final count(s) is/are due one-week/7 days prior to the event. If final food service counts are not received you will be billed based on your highest original estimate for all food service functions.
