Not sure where to put this thread...

I have been chosen to run special diets at Guiding Mosaic 2016, a huge camp for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from around the world. The camp will be held in July 2016 at Camp Woods in Alberta. With 3500 participants, I can only guess how long the list of special diets will be. (We will know by January 2016.)

So my question for all of you: what resources do you think I will find useful in planning such an event? I have the recipes on here for the caterer. Where can I find a good training tool for the caterer to educate them on cross-contact, reading ingredients, precautionary labelling (and how it's optional), calling manufacturers, etc.? I will oversee it all, along with the rest of the food services team, but want to make this as easy and efficient as possible.

Look forward to hearing your suggestions. I will pop by with other questions throughout the year leading up to camp.

And if you have a girl who is interested in attending but wasn't sure about safe food - she can attend camp safely! Even girls on out-trips will be given safe bag lunches or safe backpacking meals and supplies to take with them.

We are really, really excited. I know the head of food services well and she is onboard with making this camp completely safe, no exceptions. She truly understands food allergies and the level we need to maintain to keep participants safe.

Right now we are just waiting to hear which catering company we will be working with. That part is beyond my role, though I did forward some questions for them to answer.
