Most of us bring our own 'snack' foods, even to local events. Usually 
it's put out during the day (we don't traditionally serve lunches and 
events tend to start around 10 or 11 am), and shared with everyone. I 
make sure it's food I will eat if I end up taking it home. It ensures 
I have food I can/want to eat, and it supplements our many newcomers 
who don't know to do this or bring a potluck contribution (our normal 
tradition for dinner). I would never have pizza delivered (bring cold 
pieces for snacks, maybe).

But we especially bring food to coronets, because we never know what, 
if anything, will be available. Some coronets do no food; others do 
Saturday lunch (a dayboard) and feast, and Sunday brunch (mostly 
leftovers). Those with allergies, etc., either really need to know 
the cooks, or make sure they have their own, as some of the cooks 
don't give full information, even when asked (I know, that's rude, 
but unfortunately true). I'd go offsite before I'd order pizza at 

Locally, we know most people's allergies and cater to them some of 
the time with potluck contributions, and let them know individually 
(as well as having a list of ingredients if needed) whether something 
is safe or not for them.

Oops, I slopped over into allergies, didn't I?
