30×30 Dinner Series FAQ

“What are 30x30s?”
30x30s are a series of 30 hosted dinners in 30 consecutive days, within the homes of people in our community. While themes and menus change, what they all have in common is that they provide a chance to get to know people in a more intimate setting.

“Who can attend 30x30s?”
30x30s are open for everyone to attend… you just need to RSVP to the host in advance. We encourage hosts to reach out to newer folks in our community and to people they haven’t yet had the opportunity to get to know.

“I don’t have a big place, should I still host a 30×30?”
YES. 30x30s are not about having the perfect space to host or the perfect menu. All you need for a successful 30×30 is a willingness to open up your home, share a meal, and connect with others.

“I don’t really have that much money…but I’d like to host. Can I still participate?”
Absolutely! 30x30s are about people coming together and getting to know each other over a meal, not about being fancy. There are lots of wallet-friendly hosting ideas, such as a grilled cheese/tomato soup dinner, chili & cornbread, casseroles, pasta dishes… and you can also have a potluck and ask others to contribute to the meal! Creativity is encouraged.

“I love cooking but I don’t have a place to host… can I still get involved?”
No problem! Just contact us and we’ll team you up with someone who could use your gift of cooking.

“I have a place, but I don’t really do the cooking thing…”
Again, no problem. We have lots of folks with talent in the kitchen waiting to help you!

“Ok, I signed up to host, now what?”
We will invite folks to 30×30 dinners at every gathering and have the calendar posted on the website so folks can see the details of your dinner and RSVP to you directly. In addition, we encourage YOU, our hosts, to reach out and invite new people, or people that you’d just like to get to know better, to your dinner. And don’t forget to attend other 30x30s as well, it’s part of the fun!
