The Go Eat Give movement is about exploring the world and learning about different cultures through food and community service.
It encourages people to travel (just as they would do for a vacation) to a different part of the world, experience the local culture (not just as a tourist) by working alongside the locals in the community. No need to quit your job and take off for a year. Just contribute a few days or as little as two hours a day doing volunteer work while in a new place. And explore the cultures the rest of the year while at home, through food. Because food is one thing that brings us together. When people come together for a brief meeting or a special occasion, we always gather around food. We are social animals that want to be in a community and take pleasure in what we eat. Think about how exposure to international cuisines had broadened our horizons about different cultures.
Everyone talks about how the world is becoming a smaller place. We are more connected than ever because of the internet, media, transportation, etc. There is also much discussion about the human race entering a new era of enlightenment. It is expected that if we abandon our recent habits of competition and consumption, and tap into our inner spirits, the world will become a better place. In order to get there, we need to make an effort to love and understand our brothers and sisters around the world.
The Go Eat Give movement is here to enhance the evolution process, create mutual understand and raise awareness of who we are. Do not abandon your lifestyle, move abroad or make a huge commitment. Only stop being a tourist in your own world and start paying attention to your global community.
Go Eat Give is about connecting people, places and palates.
