The Meal 2014

More Info

Nothing makes us feel connected quite like sharing a meal together. On February 28th at 12pm Eastern Standard Time, thousands of strangers from around the world will sit down for a bite in unison and capture a shared experience at the exact same time. Take a photograph of yourself with your meal and mail it back to us. These simultaneous snapshots – self-portraits of people and their foods – will then be tweeted and posted online for the world to share. Our aim is to inspire a feeling of community across geographic and cultural boundaries. So wherever you may be on February 28th at 12pm, keep your camera handy and something delicious nearby – and remember that thousands of strangers, both near and far, are sharing that meal with you.
