You will be asked but not required to bring food and/or beverages. Sometimes you might not be available, and that's okay. The other flexible aspect of it is you can prepare the dish and drop it by the school for the event. This works well for people with limited time. Some of the events will take place in the evenings, which may be an option for people who otherwise wouldn't be available. Please consider signing up.
