The project Meal to Share aims to bridge the divide between foreigners and locals through food. The project seeks to create an opportunity for better social cohesion between different communities in the city through the facilitation of potluck-style community dinners in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Before each dinner the participants, approximately half of whom are local residents and half – migrants, are invited to bring a dish to share with the rest of the guests. Through facilitated, empathy-driven discussions, participants are encouraged to talk to one another, sharing stories of food and belonging.
