We’re out to prove that a group of thoughtful people who differ from one another – politically, racially, religiously, and generationally – can sit down over a shared meal, go beneath the headlines, and understand the real stories that have shaped who we are.

The first #100days100dinners are over, but The People’s Supper continues. Pull up a chair.

Here's what folks are saying about The People's Supper:

There is a spiritual quality to strangers dining together. Opening their minds and heart to one another, and seeking personal meaning and purpose, in our complicated and confusing world. Thanks for facilitating such a moment last evening.
— Rob, Washington DC
It was actually one of the best meals I’ve ever shared. I was so grateful that our table was very diverse, and it brought such a richness of stories and listening capacity. In a time of fear and hurt and rage, the humanizing act of breaking bread and being brave together in our vulnerability was so transformational.
— Michelle, Miami FL
It was magical, and I left feeling excited for the challenges ahead, adoring my fellow guests, and looking forward to the next dinner. And I encourage everyone to dive in and sign up for a dinner! The water is really, really warm.
— Destiny, New York City NY
After meeting and listening to everyone, I woke up more hopeful for this country. Thank you for that gift.
— Karen, Washington DC
Although we worried that busy students would not relax and truly engage with one another without stressing about time, this was not the case. 100 Days/100 Dinners was actually the antidote for that worry. We all were left wanting to share more stories, listen even more deeply and of course, ultimately wanting more time together. Our initial vulnerability as strangers gave way to an authentic connection across difference. Of course, we were nourished along the way by incredible tamales.
