As a host, do I have to pay for the meal?

Who covers the cost of food? 


No, hosts are not expected to pay for the meal. In fact Civic Dinners are meant to be either potluck where everyone brings a dish or at a restaurant where everyone pays for their own meal with separate checks. If a host wishes to provide a meal at home, they can decide to charge guests for the cost of food within reason and the cost should be listed on the platform. Fixed prices should not exceed $35 to keep dinners accessible. After all, it's not meant to be about the food. It's all about the conversation.
