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.
