Q:  Why only 4 meals a month?

Eating together is a wonderful way for neighbors to get to know one another so each member receives four dinner coupons per month. Some people eat in the dining room once a week and view it as a special occasion. Others buy extra coupons to eat in the dining room more frequently or use them to entertain family or friends.
