Expectations About Food And Dishes
The Board collectively
acts acted as the Zone Coordinator for this zone. Part of the equipment used to be a set of dishes. But they were frequently left unwashed, which potentially attracted pests, and unfairly imposed a washing burden on others. The Board voted on the following decision as Zone Coordinator to remove that equipment:
"i3Detroit will not own non-disposable dishes for individual use, including plates, bowls, cups, and eating utensils. This measure neither requires nor prohibits the group from continuing to provide and replenish a stock of disposable equivalents. The group will continue to own non-disposable containers and utensils which are designed to dispense food or drinks to an entire gathering. Non-disposable dishes for individual use will be treated like any other abandoned property."
As a result of that decision, if you find unattended dishes, please ticket them and put them in the Lost And Found. Members may store their own dishes in their storage area. Many members use a tub in their storage cube. That's recommended for keeping the dust off.
However, i3Detroit will continue to own "servingware", such as ladles, tongs, platters, crocks, tureens, pitchers, decanters, carafes, or spigoted beverage dispensers.
