Super Host FAQ

What does it mean to be a SUPER host?

It’s really simple: You determine a location for your nonprofit, faith community, neighborhood group or co-workers to meet on September 23, 2017, for a mealtime conversation to listen to one another’s stories and figure out together fun, creative ideas around how we can make our communities even better.

You have the choice to host a breakfast, lunch, dinner, happy-hour or wherever you want, and serve whatever you like – from a catered or home-cooked meal to a picnic, barbecue or soup-and-salad meal.

What should an Around the Table gathering look like?

Super Hosts are encouraged to be creative. The priority is to create an atmosphere conducive to meaningful conversation – a potluck or a catered meal are a few ideas.
