The Meal

"Nothing makes us feel connected quite like sharing a meal together. On February 24th at 12pm Eastern Standard Time, thousands of strangers from around the world will sit down for a bite in unison and capture a shared experience at the exact same time. Take a photograph of yourself with your meal and mail it back to us. These simultaneous snapshots – self-portraits of people and their foods – will be exhibited in our storefront project space and made available online. Our aim is to inspire a feeling of community across geographic and cultural boundaries. So wherever you may be on February 24th at 12pm, keep your camera handy and something delicious nearby – and remember that thousands of strangers, both near and far, are sharing that meal with you." - Art House Co-op

This project is intended to being awareness to world hunger. It is too late to participate in the exhibit but it's is never too late to participate in the solution! If you want to make a difference visit Action Against Hunger to find out what you can do.

I don't do self portraits very well so I only took a photo of my meal. I thought what would be more interesting is a photo of an empty plate so I took one of those too.
