Food has always been a community builder, serving to bring people together and helping to develop strong bonds. Over the years, sharing meals and offering strangers food were considered ways of showing love and care, besides providing an opportunity for loved ones to have a great time. Today, food can still be used within multifamily communities to achieve specific objectives. For instance, property managers can rely on food-related events to not only create a sense of belonging among the community but also show appreciation for residents.
Some of the food-related ideas that property management teams can consider include having a breakfast-on-the-go resident event, organizing a resident event wine tasting, or hosting a happy hour resident event. Depending on the members of your community, you can also exercise your creativity by thinking about national night out ideas for apartments. Don’t limit your thoughts to just food-only for your food-focused multifamily events though. You can host great events such as family movie nights, video game tournaments, a talent show, or a kids’ carnival, and have great food options at any of those. Other multifamily food-related events to consider are hosting a party where residents sample different cuisines, having a food truck rally, ice cream socials, and cooking or baking classes.
If you live in a luxury community, your luxury apartment resident events should take into account the lifestyles of the residents. Only by including ideas that the tenants will find enticing will you be able to get them out of their units and encourage them to take part in the events.
