What better way to kick off VBS planning and preparation with your team than with a themed meal? Eating together before the meeting allows time for your team to bond with each other and provides the energy needed to plan and prepare. Below are some fun ways to make your meal memorable and theme-focused.
Maker Fun Factory Foods
Pizza, tacos, sandwiches, salad, ice cream sundaes – all of these foods lend themselves to easy build-your-own meals (or dessert). Ask volunteers to help by bringing one or more toppings to share with the group.
Passport to Peru Foods
Pasta, tomatoes, garlic bread – you get the idea. Serve an Italian meal and have team members bring the sides and desserts.
Operation Arctic Foods
Serve steaming, hot soup for dinner, followed by ice cream or popsicles for dessert.
Mighty Fortress & Over the Moat Foods
Think medieval for these themes – chicken pot pie, beef stew, roasted chicken with vegetables and crusty bread. A hearty warm meal is the key.
Hero Central & Super God Foods
Sub sandwiches (aka hero sandwiches) and a variety of snack foods are perfect for this theme.
Camp Out Foods
Roasted hot dogs and grilled hamburgers with s’mores for dessert make a delicious camp style dinner.
