Meal Hosting

WorldDinner: Hosted dinners often make the biggest impact on the international visitors because they create opportunities for one-on-one conversation and a deeper appreciation for cultural commonalities. Whether a summer barbecue, a dinner shared with friends, or a simple family supper, these visits often lead to long-term friendships and offer a welcoming window for visitors during their time in the U.S. We offer opportunities to host anywhere from two visitors to a whole group. Meals usually take place in the evening and last two to four hours.

To sign up for an opportunity, please complete the brief survey or email the Program Officer assigned to the project directly. The Program Officer will confirm your participation. We are lucky to have a wonderful community of hosts, so cannot guarantee every opportunity you may sign up for. 

To be the first to know about new opportunities, sign up for our e-newsletter (select "Host International Visitors")!
