The Kenyan nation and its food are very different from what many of us are accustomed. The local foods will be different from our American foods. Every effort is made by our host congregation leadership to ensure that our food will be nutritious and safe for us to eat. Kenyans will provide breakfast and dinner. However, some team members have found it difficult to eat some native foods. Each team member will need to provide his/her own lunch/snack that is eaten at the clinic during the day. Some have found it best to purchase portable food either at home or in Nairobi for consumption away from Nairobi. DO NOT drink any water or brush your teeth with water from a faucet or water tap. ALL MEMBERS SHOULD EXPECT TO BUY BOTTLED WATER IN NAIROBI. Please be aware that WHILE IN KENYA, CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOL IS PROHIBITED.
