Occasionally the Fannie Mae will lunch or small bites catered in for visiting Leadership and/or for small meetings. There is usually a heads up from the client beforehand. Most times, they use the large Multi-Purpose room; however there are several other small conference rooms that may be used. Some of the smaller rooms such as the Savannah room may require a table if the client wants to have lunch in the room. Also, there are no trash bins in the meeting rooms so they will either have to walk their trash over to the Town Center or keep one of the delivery bags as a trash bin.

If meeting is located in the MultiPurpose Room, there is a large counter area w/ sink where the delivery person can set it up. Facilities or the person who initially ordered the food can sign for the bill. Always make a copy of the receipt and order summary for records keeping purposes.

Additional tables can be found in the storage room attached to the Multi Purpose room. Facilities can unlock the storage room to get additional tables.

There are also extra napkins and cups in the cabinets under the counter.
