Plan Your Meals

Sometimes, a kitchen can be hard to come by when looking for lodging, and often the mission schedule is so busy that it makes it hard for you to find time to cook. We have found that one of the best solutions has been to budget your trip around a cereal bar (continental-style breakfast), packing a sack lunch to eat on the go, and then giving cash to participants at night.

We typically budgeted $10 per person for the evening meals (Sunday-Thursday on a typical trip). Individuals who wanted to spend more supplemented with their own money. The following is a list of affordable places and activities that we have used on previous trips for evening meals. Information and menus are easily accessible online.

See the Sights

It is important to remember in St. Louis that your group’s primary focus is serving the city. However, you should not at all feel guilty for taking some time each day to see a site or two. It may be the first time for many in your group to visit the city, and some of them may not have another opportunity to visit again. It also is an integral part of understanding how the city works and the people who live here. Seeing the Arch at night is a true highlight for most travelers who visit the city, and if you are able, a Cardinals Baseball Game is particularly fun. Tickets can be cheap, and the experience is well worth your time. You will not have time to see everything, but you can see the major sights.
