I'm helping with food at one National tour gardens this year.
What are your favorite things to have as drinks and snacks when you visit?

We will have cold water, of course!

Hi Leslie, One food that we had in our garden last year was fresh strawberries that we bought at Kroger. They were washed the night before. We had lots of compliments on them. I tried to offer more non sweet items but did have a few sweets. We bought in bulk the small individual packages with an assortment of cookies, cheese bits, etc. that the garden visitors could carry with them as they walked the garden or could eat on the bus. We did have an assortment of sodas along with cold bottled water but bought the small cans. Don't remember the # of ounces, but they are cheaper and less waste. I do not recommend that you try to cook lots of something in advance. You will very quickly overwhelm yourself trying to have enough for 600 visitors. KEEP IT SIMPLE!

What about something on a stick, like kabob style, cheese, olives, ham, pineapple, grapes ect and just spear them, so people just take one and go?

Thanks to both of you for the great suggestions. Doris, I had to laugh when you said not to cook for 600. I used to have a catering buisness which was started because I "needed" to bake. 600 doesn't scare me. Thumbs up

was thinking that what you serve may depend on the time of day. If this tour is early morning on schedule or later afternoon.... for instance fruits before lunch, maybe more cheese/meat/veg type thing in the afternoon. Weather may make a difference too, if it is cooler temp vs 100 blazing full sun degrees... you might even try serving small cubes of fruits/veg (whatever you choose) in plastic/foam cups, -easy to carry w one hand and even sit down if needed, already bite size...Those fancy cake pops? But I am assuming most visitors will be older and may not like that much sugar...
