  • Taste of Westminster FAQs

    How do we purchase dinners?
    The deadline to order meals has passed.

    Do we need tickets or receipts for Taste of Westminster dinners?
    No; you only need to purchase your dinners. As you arrive, we’ll check off names.

    What if our family members arrive at separate times?
    Not a problem! We keep track of how many dinners per family are served.

    What if we want another student to use one of our meals?
    If you can, please email Lisa Rupprecht to let her know. If not, your student must be present to tell us.

    Can we buy dinners at the door?
    No meals will be sold at the door. If you want to check after the dinners are completed, and we have extras, you can purchase a meal at that time.
