"An Eat-In is a group of people gathering in public in order to share a home-cooked meal. They originated in the USA see

They have been adopted by the YFM as a great tool for positive statements about food in our lives. You can hold one to bring your community together or to highlight a specific issue by holding your Eat-in somewhere significant, like a supermarket car park!

Eat-Ins are organised by everyday people. The first Eat-In took place in San Francisco on September 1 as part of Slow Food Nation 2008. Since then, people who participated in or were inspired by the event have begun bringing their communities together to Eat-In.

The first YFM UK Eat-In was held in Hyde Park on June 7th 2009."

Project from Brite Collective and Eating is Art- EAT MY STORY

A project about sharing stories and memories through food and cooking...

The rules were as follows:

"Share a short story with the group (150 words or less).
Pick and bring pizza ingredients to the event that will tell you story.
Come to Via Tribunali the day of the event. Pick someone else's story at random.
Interpret that person's story on the pizza using their ingredients (adding or subtracting as necessary)...lotsa room for creativity here.
Cook your creation to perfection at 1000 degrees F in Via Tribunali's wood fired oven.
Share your the story and pizza with group...drink vino...converse...revel...enjoy."

Nice concept.

Brite Collective is based in Seattle and they get together to organise community projects and social events.

good packaging

I've been meaning to take pictures of these for a while, the something about them that made me smile.
