Do I have to supply meals?

No, supplying meals is not compulsory, but most students are seeking a homestay that provides one or more meals per day.

Providing meals is not required, but most students looking for a homestay are wanting one or more host provided meals per day.  The meal options we offer Students is detailed below. Please note that we have set rates for the various meal plans.

  1. Breakfast only- Continental-style breakfast. The Student prepares their own breakfast using food you provide  e.g. cereal, toast, fruit, yogurt, juice and coffee.
  2. Lunch only – The Student will prepare and pack their own lunch using ingredients you provide e.g. sandwiches, salad, fruit or leftovers from dinner.
  3. Dinner only – A cooked meal you prepare.
  4. Breakfast and dinner.
  5. Breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  6. No meals.

Please note: if you do not supply meals, you will need to allow the Student to use the kitchen to prepare their meals. Please dedicate some space for them in the fridge and a cupboard/area to store their food. Ensure your house rules include information regarding cleaning up after themselves and suitable times to cook.
