With apartments averaging $3000 a month and median home prices now topping $1 million in San Jose, the cost of housing looms large in Silicon Valley and is the impetus behind On the Table, an event aimed at generating new approaches to the region’s housing crunch. Organized by the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, On the Table will convene hundreds of conversations at dinner tables across the Bay Area, seeking answers to the question, “How would you fix the Bay Area’s housing crisis?”.
