I'd second this, though I'm related, so maybe I can't be trusted?

In my mind, the difference between an official house and an unofficial one is that when an official house offers meals for pay, you feel like you're supporting their outreach (and yes, part of that is a salary for the sheliach). When an unofficial house (or random frum guy) offers meals for pay, you feel like you're just giving someone money.

I see now I could be very wrong.

But what about when it's a mushroom and you're related to both sides? (Im not, in this case)

Yeah, no. In many cases, the mushrooms are doing the real work.

I guess some dirty laundry is OK to hang out in public. As long as there's nothing ideological or intellectual about it.  :P

I think he calls himself the latter, though that is effectively the same as being a mushroom.

So he's not a mushroom... just a fun guy

If JJ would stop wielding that axe for half a minute, we might actually get to grind it.

When an unofficial house (or random frum guy) offers meals for pay,

You're paying for a product you want, that you probably don't have another source for.
Are you paying him more than you'd pay for takeout at home?  Maybe. But you're not at home.

I look at both as tzedaka personally. The markup anyway.

The amount paid really wasn't my point

I'm willing to bet it was chicken balls
Confirmed that indeed was not matza balls.

Inspiring to talk to these selfless and amazing people who travel to make a seder for a handful of people a couple hours away from the nearest Chabad house.

Sadly I only now read through all these posts. Does that mean that the Philippine Chabad is not trustworthy to eat at? I have seen many heimish mashgichim eating there and now I am wondering if people just dont know.

If they can’t be trusted to make good Kashrus decisions themselves, should they be trusted by their employers?

I am wondering how you read through all of these posts and got to that conclusion.

I think his point might be that you can bash kashrus at chabad houses until you end up somewhere hungry...

Interestingly, there are several Chabad hashgachos listed here:

What do they do differently?
