Project SPUD Week 2
This week we recruited three chiefs for our leadership team. We now have a treasurer and a hospitality hostess to welcome customers at our food booth at the Wapping Community fair. We also have a "Booth setup and break down chief" to erect the tent, transport all the equipment to the booth and then take it all down again after the fair.
I clarified some of the roles and responsibilities based on our meeting last week and the email exchanges among the team leaders this week. We found out that potatoes are graded in counts. A restaurant serves 80 to 90 count size potatoes. Larger potatoes are in the 50 to 60 count range. Who knew?
Tonight we will discuss the open issues at our lead team meeting:
1. Where will we find a chief cook and "booth worker team" chief? These are critical lead roles for our project to be successful.
2. Where are we going to get potatoes? What size of potatoes are needed?
3. Are we going to support a local charity with the profits from our food booth? I have come to learn that food booths are more profitable when they support, in part, a charitable cause outside of their own main cause.
