NESI Meals

The PEEC kitchen staff will provide delicious and plentiful food for NESI. We provide dinner on Friday, 3 meals on Saturday, and breakfast and lunch on Sunday. Specific dietary needs should be communicated on your registration form so the kitchen can provide alternatives as needed.

The dining room is a short distance from the admin building. It’s very spacious, well ventilated, and architecturally dramatic. There are also two adjacent outdoor patios (partly roofed) that contain large picnic tables. 

Although food was normally served buffet-style at PEEC, one of their adjustments in response to the Covid pandemic is to have food plated by the staff, with condiments in individual single-use packets. People will be asked to maintain a 6-foot social distance while in line. This may make food service a little slower than a buffet. 

We have asked them to adjust their meal service times to be the same as those we had at Chimney Corners so that workshops will fit the available time blocks: 

  • Dinner (Friday, Saturday) – 6 to 7 pm 
  • Breakfast (Saturday) 8:30 – 9:30 (Sunday) 9 - 10 
  • Lunch (Saturday, Sunday) 12 - 1
Responsible use of alcohol by those over age 21 is permitted. Please make sure you clean up after yourself and use good judgment. 



Meals are a prime time for making new friends, getting together with old ones and de-compressing from all the music.
