Food at Seloutky and Olomouc

Students will eat breakfast in the dormitory and lunch in the field.  Breakfasts will be typical Czech field breakfasts, including yogurts, granola, vegetables, cheese, bread, and meat.  The typical field lunch will include sandwiches, fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, pretzels/chips.  Students will have access to a refrigerator in or near their dormitory should they wish to have their own food or drinks.

For dinner, we will eat at a local restaurant in Olomouc.  Students will choose between 2 soups and 5-7 main entrees.  Entrees are typically hearty, featuring chicken or pork.  Czech food is typically high protein, high carbohydrate, and high fiber.  Special dietary needs can be met, such as vegetarians and those with gluten intolerance, as the restaurant offers a variety of meal options, and can modify many meals.

Some weekend meals may also be furnished, though students typically travel widely and may not be present on-site for most of the weekend.  The dormitory has basic kitchen facilities for students that wish to use them.  Amenities include hot plates, microwaves, and toaster ovens.
