I am attending a workshop all weekend that promised free breakfast and lunch. On the form, they asked about food allergies and I dutifully filled it out, but judging from the offerings today, it doesn't look like they made any sort of accommodations accordingly. I of course had come prepared with my own stuff, but it had me wondering, why are they going to ask if the answer is not going to change the plan anyway?

Maybe so they know who to watch for reactions? Why don't you ask them? They often a have a feedback form.

Maybe if the allergy was peanuts or nuts---which is easy enough to not include--they would have attempted to accomodate you?

What reallly gets me is when lunch and/or dinner is included with price of admission . . . it wouldn't be possible for people to accomodate me with all my allergies, but I don't like having to subsidize other peoples' meals.
