Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Is this an all you can eat event?
This is technically not an all you can eat event because people tend to pick up as much food as possible and throw away uneaten food. Therefore, in order to minimize food waste, you can eat as much as you want but there is a limit of 1 serving per person every time you line up for a food item.
