"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."
