·         A rota will be created, two people each day will prepare food and clean dishes for all 12 participants (breakfast, lunch and supper)

·         Each rota pair will also be responsible for grocery shopping to purchase supplies for ‘their’ day – i.e. sufficient food for breakfast/lunch/dinner for all participants.
