->> Hello! Do you or does someone you know, instead of expensing food during shoots, they doing a per diem. I personally have a gluten allergy and bring my own food.

Those of you that do:
-Do you have separate fees for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner?
-How do you write that into your contracts?

Thank you in advance!!!

->> Hannah,

Kinda off topic, but how did you find out you were allergic to gluten?

->> I just always have a line item on the job estimate that covers all meals during a shoot, but it's not broken down by breakfast, lunch, dinner. And it's not for a set amount. My preference is to just add a note saying meals/hotel will not exceed a certain amount. My thought would be to simply explain the situation to clients and say that you charge a set fee to cover 3 meals a day. Most likely they will prefer that since they won't be surprised by a huge dinner bill at Morton's or the like. Naturally every client is different. But they all seem to like to know exactly what their final invoice will total. And certainly anyone would be understanding of your allergies.

Good luck.

Randy

->> Matthew- I knew during college that the morning after consuming adult beverage was always a little better if the adult beverage was not beer. Someone once mentioned that it sounded to them like a gluten issue. When I started displaying more symptoms similar to lactose intolerance, but cutting out dairy didn't help, I switched a completely gluten-free diet. Of course it wasn't until after a few weeks of horrible stomach pains caused me to not want to eat period that made me make the change (it's a tough thing to think of giving up pizza and sandwiches). I've been symptom free (unless I eat out and get contaminated or, like on my birthday, I eat my favorite foods) since making the change last January.

Randy- Thanks! Very helpful!

->> I am from a celiac family Hannah, I know how tough it can be.
FYI, beware of some ketchups, many have citric acid, which is really a burnt byproduct of a wheat cooking process, so another thing to look out for.

SOme of the products are sneaky!

->> Matthew- You make do. It makes me sick enough I don't think of it as missing out, more that I'm not making myself sick! They do make some decent GF breads now a days and I'll pick up a loaf from time to time if I really crave a sandwich!

Scott- Thanks! I'll be on the look out for that now!
