Frequently asked questions
Does RIM accommodate special dietary needs?
All meals are arranged in advance and prepared by local cooks to incorporate local cuisine. For this reason, RIM does not offer specialized meal options (such as vegetarian, gluten-free, vegan, paleo, low-carb, etc). If you have a medically necessary dietary need, you will need to pack supplementary food items in your checked luggage. Please call RIM with any questions or concerns.
What if I’m a picky eater?
You’ll quickly learn that missions is about flexibility and willingness to leave your comfort zone. All participants should be prepared to smile and eat what is set before them in order to be culturally sensitive and to not offend our hosts or cooks. Relationships are more important than preferences!
