I think restaurants could be a community service that are
for and owned by a community.
If you add up all the costs of a restaurant:
Divide the costs by the people in a local area, the restaurant
becomes an affordable luxury that someone can go to almost
every night for dinner. And it's owned by the local
It's not to make a profit but purely to feed people and give
local people jobs.
I include the costs of a minibus because you need to make
your way to the restaurant venue and you can pick up old
people in a minibus.
The risk of running a restaurant is shared amongst all the
people who sign up.

meal. Some students complained because the
football team paid the same price-per-meal as the
cheerleaders while eating at least twice as much. In

idea would promote. Maybe this could be a "soup
kitchen", that is, entirely free (paid by volunteer
donors) serving cheap noodle soups for free, bit nice

together-ism, but my view of "Luxury Apartments" is different. (See
||This idea is separate from luxury apartments for everyone.
This idea is about decoupling risk of running a restaurant and
sharing that risk in a community and feeding people.
||Sounds like soup kitchens.

place and wants it to be available to everybody, or at
least to him or her, or free, or cheap, without
knowing how to make it free or cheap.
