Lodges and Huts
Maintenance Work Parties: Food
A typical summer breakfast at Clair Tappan Lodge (CTL) includes fruit, hot and cold cereal, pancakes, and assorted beverages. Breakfast at the hut will be along the same lines, but simpler -- no pancakes, which are difficult to cook in the field for large groups.
You make your own lunches from materials provided at CTL before breakfast Saturday morning; you can choose among several types of bread, sliced lunch meats, cheese, fruit, potato chips, and cookies. Make lunches for two days. If you can't get to CTL in time to make your lunches, you should bring your own.
Dinner at the hut is usually spaghetti, chili, or something similar with salad and a dessert.
At the hut we also try to provide a selection of beverages such as fruit juices from concentrate, hot chocolate, coffee, and various flavors of tea.
You can get dinner at CTL Sunday evening before heading home (usually served at 5 p.m.), but you'll have to tell CTL staff before leaving CTL Saturday if you want Sunday dinner.
If you have food preferences or requirements (e.g., vegetarian, low-salt, no dairy products) advise the leader as soon as possible. The Sierra Club may not be able to accommodate all requests, but there is no reason not to ask.
