A calendar listing open, community meals at different Boston co-op houses. We suggest each house to designate a specific day once a month or more frequently for an open house meal. The intent is to facilitate more mingling between Boston co-opers, and also to offer a chance for interested people to experience a bit of cooperative living.
- "Come to appreciate the space the co-op houses are opening up. If you can bring something to eat or drink, please do, but most importantly bring your interest"
- Houses should pick specific, regular times for the community meal, even if they have daily house meals, to ensure that the community meal is well attended by hosting housemates & welcoming to new folks (including people new to co-ops)
- Be clear on what diets will be accomodated the meal (will the food be omnivorous? gluten free? vegan?)
- Publicly advertising free meals in a home opens the home to people who are just coming for the meals & not for the co-op experience
Where to post the open meals:
