Drinking water quality and food safety standards differ from country to country. Within the hub space, on outings, and during Thursday Field Trips, we always provide safe drinking water, by purchasing 20-gallon refillable bottles or individual bottles, or by using a filtration system that produces potable water. We provide reusable cups or bottles for participants. Our cooks employ safe food-handling practices. While Deliberate Detour cannot ensure potable water for your family outside of hub time, the Family Handbook provided to enrolled families offers more information about how to stay safe and healthy in the hub city.
