Everybody Eats Lunch is a storytelling and community project pairing strangers together for a one-on-one conversation and meal, with food donated by local restaurants. Featured on PBS and NPR Stations as the “anti-echo chamber experience,” the project is launching simultaneously in the Bay Area and Midwest.
