Frequently Asked Questions
How do I host an international visitor?
Traditional home hospitality means picking a small group of visitors up from their hotel, feeding the a home cooked meal, and taking them back to their hotel at the end of the evening. The idea is for international visitors to have a safe, casual space where they can learn about ‘average’ Americans. Break bread. Share stories of their work, family, and home country.
What if I am a horrible cook?
Our visitors spend most of their time eating in restaurants, and home hospitality is their main opportunity to eat a homemade meal and unwind. That said, we are open to alternative ways of hosting! Have some friends bring pieces of a potluck. Order in a pie. Cook mac and cheese. No three-course meals are needed!
What about dietary restrictions?
We’ll let you know whether visitors have any allergies or dietary restrictions before they come to you.
I really don’t have space in my home. How else can I meet these visitors?
At times, visitors are able to take part in unconventional hospitality, cultural activities, etc. Additionally, we regularly have community events where we are joined by visitors as our featured guests and speakers.
