This first one is a beautiful video about connecting and bringing comfort over food. It is powerful for many reasons: this connection over a meal brought peace to a person who was feeling alone, it includes many cultures, and the wisdom and compassion of a child brings it to a higher level.

“We grow up eating together. Why do we stop?”

Aside from how rich and compassionate these videos are, I’m also attached to them because they were sent to me by one of my dearest of friends – a brother – who embodies care, compassion and strength. They were produced by Eat Together, a wonderful site and organization out of Canada that looks for sharing food stories from that country.
