Re: Dietary preferences (bachounda)

Mohammed Bachounda
Hello

I think
according Sunnis Muslims can eat kosher food
all foods are halal except meats if they are prepared according to Muslim rites.
mexico has only 0.02% of
Muslims ;I doubt that halal food is on sale in stores

if the organizers may specify the Ingrediens of food that would be ideal and best wish for all

in london replaced meat with fish to compensate for the protein deficiency

in addition 7 days without meat is not so severe

best



I happen to live in a neighborhood of Brooklyn with both extensive Kosher
and Halal options (which is probably not a coincidence, since there is
significant overlap in rules).  But Mexico City has a different cultural
mix than New York City or London.

I can understand, though, that it may be too expensive and difficult to get
Kosher or Halal meat, or indeed fully catered meals, for Wikimania in
Mexico City.

Bur I would suggest going to a supermarket and getting something like a
pre-packaged hummus with K and H marks, and some plain fruits and
vegetables, so folks like this can at least have snack options during the
conference sessions, and that can tide them over if they want to go out for
a full meal fulfilling their dietary preferences later.

Thanks,
Richard

Re: Dietary preferences (bachounda)

In reply to this post by Mohammed Bachounda
Since the bid said ""Vegan and Kosher options are considered." I can appreciate that those who want Kosher food would feel disappointed if the option of offering them has been considered and now rejected.

No bid is going to be perfect, but it would be better in future if this sort of thing was identified at the bid stage, and maybe we should try and find out which of these options are needed and by how many.

As for Mexico, may I suggest they make it easy for those that want to avoid pork to do so as well as those who want to avoid other meat. There are also going to people who will want to know if they have considered offering a vegan option and if so whether they will do so.

Personally I like Mexican cuisine and look forward to eating Mexican food, I suspect most attendees will also be fairly flexible re food - if there are only a small number for whom special arrangements need to be made then surely that is a diversity issue which we should make arrangements for?
