Meals in Homes

The donor agrees to serve a meal at their home, unless otherwise specified, on a mutually agreeable date with the buyer. The donor specifies the number of people to be invited and usually designates a certain type of meal—anything from pizza to a brunch, a holiday meal, a home-style meat-and-potato meal, grilled meal, Amish meal, etc. After arranging the date, the buyer invites his/her guests to the meal. Unless otherwise noted, meals expire one year from this year's benefit. Meals donated for the 2022 Benefit included the following:
