Susan — if you are reimbursing the cooks … what’s the tax implication?  If you 
were making money e.g. a profit … I could see this.  But how is this different 
between friends reimbursing each other?

Maybe someone can enlighten me.  I’m sure there’s something I’m not seeing.

Here at TVC we don’t collect money for meals except for a few odd times.  And 
that money also goes to reimburse the cooks.
