In the absence of Relief Society members, this event originally began as a pizza social, but has evolved over the years into a potluck dinner that even the sisters could appreciate.

Though the menu includes a variety of other dishes, however, pizza is still always included.

Because the ward is in the Eastern Daylight Time zone, the priesthood-session broadcast starts at 8 p.m., so dinner comes before conference; whereas in the Mountain Time zone the session starts at 6 p.m., so food usually comes after.
