    I wish we could do this in the Philippines...but the dietary side may not be culturally acceptable...soup, salad and bread over here are not the "de rigeur" meals for around 85% of the population but instant noodles, sardines and a ton of rice are...I know, I know, our national nutrition is Third World and really unhealthy :(

      Maybe there is something culturally that could be shared. The food is generally something that gets people in the door and something that is a common experience.

    will be presenting about the idea of micro-granting dinners in Lexington, KY this afternoon

    • Amy Kaherl

      let me know if you have any questions in the planning phase if you begin to create the dinner!

    Fantastic idea! Love the community, contributing and creating. Keep up the great work. I'll check to see if there are any groups near me. Love the idea! A friend does Chaos Cooking which is a pot luck where everyone brings their ingredient s & cooks together. It also is a GREAT way to connect. However, I LOVE Love Love the Social Change aspect of your project!

    I'm taking this idea to my community leaders who are currently engaged in canvassing the community for change ideas!

    So awesome- people gathering to create social change, finding friends with which to do more, sometimes meeting their soul-mates...resonates with the offline founding story of GOOD.

    I've been to a similar event in St Louis (check out Sloup: http://www.stlsloup.com). I found it such a lovely way to meet engaged members of my community and be a patron for art and social change. Plus the soup was delicious! Thanks to all the organizers out there who empower folks with a time, place, and reason to come together to collectively imagine, fund, and act.
