As part of the 2019 edition of Experience Groningen, Dutch residents of the city will be hosting international students during Eat&Greet dinners.

On 8 March, Stadjers across the city of Groningen will open their homes and share a meal with internationals. The municipality is currently encouraging interested individuals to volunteer to host an Eat&Greet dinner during Experience Groningen: Beyond the Student Bubble.
Experience Groningen’s goal is to help foreign students become better acquainted with the city and municipality, and that includes literally getting to know their fellow city citizens. The two-day event was held for the first time in 2015 and features thematic tracks for participants to choose from, including sports, culture and business.
The participating students will sit down to break bread with their Groninger hosts on Friday evening during the event, and the Groninger Internet Courant reports that hosts will be given five euros per student to cover buying groceries for the meal.
