We always recommend having something to eat and drink before starting any Stint. Businesses have differing outlooks on giving students free food during Stints, however if you are on a longer Stint (6+ hours) it is possible you will be given a staff meal.
If you are thirsty during a Stint, ask the manager or a member of staff for a glass of water or where you can serve yourself one. Always make sure to stay hydrated. We recommend at least one glass of water for every two hours you work!
Top Tip: When the manager gives you a tour at the beginning of your Stint, ask where you can get water and if they will offer food.
