You will be required to supply your own sample containers to distribute to the public for tasting. You will be able to sell what Menudo/Pozole you have after the tasting is done. You are required to sell your Menudo/pozole in 30 oz Styrofoam bowls for $6. All team entrees will supply their own bowls and ingredients.

Thank You,
