A Reminder: Fight Hunger by Sharing Your Meal
We just wanted to take a minute to remind you that this Friday, February 22nd at 12pm Eastern Standard Time, thousands of people will capture a shared experience at the exact same time — and you're invited! And what's more, the whole project will help raise awareness and funds for us at Action Against Hunger!
Our friends over at The Sketchbook Project, a group that builds art projects, made it easy! First, sign up. Second, plan something delicious to eat on February 22nd at 12pm EST. Take a photograph of yourself with your meal and tweet it @arthouse or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. These self-portraits of people and their food will be posted online for the world to see and share. The aim of "The Meal," as the project is dubbed, is to inspire a feeling of community across geographic and cultural boundaries.
Wherever you may be on February 22nd at 12pm EST, keep your camera handy and something delicious nearby — and remember that thousands of strangers, both near and far, are sharing that meal with you!
