    Catering the Sochi Olympics - behind the scenes


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     ChrisMorrow told me, 'I heard about a San Diego company who does the catering for the Olympics (all of them!) and had to hear about the setup. Tasted the different burgers and would say the quality is good and in no way tastes like typical event food. I also remember enjoying a burger at the Vancouver Olympics. John told me due to the Edward Snowden issue that meat was banned from Russia and they had to store the containers in Turkey for several months, Russia has the most challenges because you can't run around the corner in any of the towns to get anything. Resources in Russia are limited.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    A San Diego company is providing food for the U.S. broadcast and international media, as well as corporate sponsors and many athletes, at the majority of the 14+ Olympic competition venues. "It’s like taking 5,000 ppl camping for two months transporting in 50+ containers. Imagine being the one to build a grocery list for 2 mos. and 12,000 meals a day!", says John Crisafulli, President, Behind the Scenes Catering. This is the 8th Olympics for John and check out my video interview where he talks about what happens to put on the Olympic Games.





    The 2014 Winter Olympics Games in Sochi, Russia begin on Friday, February 7. The games run through February 23.
