Note: you will need to set up a separate account (i.e. non-Symphony) with Shell Provisions to place these orders. Once you make your food/drink selections and confirm them in the Cart (look for the  "Bag" logo at the upper right), you'll be asked to login or (on your first order) create your new account. Before you select food and drink, you will be asked for your general seating section and your performance date; after you have selected your food and drink, you'll be asked for your exact seat location and preferred delivery time. You will have the option of setting your card as the "default" payment method on your first order going forward. All orders will generate a confirmation e-mail that will come from Shell Provisions (not the San Diego Symphony).

(Note: please do not contact the Symphony Ticket Office about food pre-orders; they will have no information to help you!)
