"A meal is essential to fuel our body, but a shared meal is essential for fueling our civilization".
"The table becomes a place to discover our shared humanity, build trust and ultimately make peace. Whether it’s a simple potluck dinner with friends, or a meal intended to feed a hungry village, eating together can be a catalyst for positive change."
"As the people I meet at our community dinner open up and are honest with me, I find that I become more honest with myself about my own poverties."
