I'm giving this a nudge over to the theme camps board, since that's a better fit for 'seeking camp' threads.

To answer your question though, I agree with 9ah - be radically self reliant, figure out your own meals (like most participants do). With resources like the internet around, I can't imagine it would be that difficult to locate groceries, delis, etc. in Reno where you could get kosher food.

It requires more preparation than that. I been to Reno and there's nothing Kosher there. Thanks for the advice.

Glatt kosher on the playa is very difficult as is 'just' kosher. The entire playa is permeated with bacon and bacon related foods.
A suggestion is to bring your own cookware, plates and utensils. Plan on your own food, such as eggs, cereals as well as lots of canned goods for other meals. You might just consider 'reform' kosher for the week. Things that could be kosher, but not necessarily kosher. Chicken falls into this category. 8) (bacon cheeseburgers do not)

Another good thing is energy and snack bars. Plan well and you can make it work.

Clinging to default world rituals seems a bit antithetical to attending the event. Eat bacon, you might be surprised to find that lightning won't come out of the sky and strike you dead. Visit Barbie Death Camp while you're at it.

There's someone else looking for a kosher camp--or at least a rabbi--as well. I told her to look at this list and call/email anyone that might fit. Do it today, as a lot of people are on the playa already, or on travel, so do a broad search.
Would it be possible to fly into San Francisco and shop there? Eric might know where, but the internet is definitely your friend.

Wow. Ummm cutting it a bit close.

That said, if you tone down your food expectations (remember, most people experience a decrease in appetite) you should easily be able to put together a meal plan on your own. Get some kosher packaged foods and fly out with them. New York and New Jersey have a ton of options. Get some fruits and vegetables in Reno.

For the future, I wonder if one can get IDF MRE's. That would be a simple solution.

Also, that Playa standard, Tasty Bites, is kosher.
