The neighborhood provides
The wife of our neighbor Kazama-san died recently and most of us attended her as she lay in state at home, at her cremation, and at her wake. Kazama-san is a gifted gardner who provides the neighborhood with a constant supply of flowers in season, but he himself never learned to cook. 

With no discussion, the wives of the neighborhood have in rotation been providing Kazama-san every day with lunch and dinner, each meal brought to his door by a different member of the family.
