The Suppers Programs Participant Waiver

This agreement contains a waiver of claims based on negligence.

Welcome to Suppers, where our mission is to provide safe and friendly settings where people can develop and manage their own personal transitions to a healthier life. As you join us for our meetings, workshops, presentations and any other programs, please know that we must also function in a world where agreements must be made for liability reasons. PLEASE READ, SIGN AND SUBMIT THIS PARTICIPANT WAIVER.

Because culinary activities can present risks, The Suppers Programs, Inc. depends on you to use your good judgment and reasonable care for your own safety and the safety of others. Please follow the directions of the facilitator(s), workshop or program leader, or staff member carefully. If you have any questions about your ability to safely follow any instructions you are given, please immediately alert the facilitator(s), workshop or program leader, or staff member. 

In consideration for your participation in an activity with The Suppers Programs, and by signing this form, you acknowledge, agree and understand that your participation is voluntary, and you assume the risks associated with the activity in which you will be participating. Such risks may include, but are not limited to, the risk of physical injury or harm. You further agree to indemnify, save and hold harmless The Suppers Programs from any and all claims arising out of an injury, disability, or death resulting from your participation in its activities. This waiver specifically includes any claims made by you arising from the alleged negligent acts of The Suppers Programs, its employees, agents, facilitators, workshop or program leader, staff, or volunteers and any related parent and/or subsidiary entities.

You represent that you are at least 18 years old, and well and competent to participate in Suppers meetings in which I voluntarily use kitchen equipment and work closely with other members of the Suppers community. 

You understand that when you sign this document, it applies to all locations where you experience The Suppers Programs.

You are aware that for meetings that require pre-payment online, Suppers can refund up to 72 hours prior to the event. After that, you may personally gift the seat to another participant, but no refund or credit is available. There is also no refund or credit if someone signs up for a series (group of meetings) and misses a meeting or session. 

You understand that Suppers meetings are no substitute for therapy or treatment, and that Suppers is about support for diet and lifestyle change. You also understand that participants take responsibility for getting professional help as needed. Comments made by participants reflect their personal opinions and experiences and do not represent a position taken by Suppers.

You have thoroughly read this document and agree to its principles.
