What is it about food and the people who enjoy it that makes it so wonderful? Food is more than just what individuals consume when they’re hungry. Food is awe-inspiring, delicious, innovative, colorful, and inspiring, to name a few adjectives. A shared love of food may bring people together and make even the saddest person feel better without them even realizing it. I enjoy food and believe you should as well. There’s nothing like having your entire family gathered at the table for dinner. Food acts as a connector, bringing people together. Getting the whole family together for Christmas Eve dinner or Thanksgiving dinner at your grandparents’ house, treating a friend to a birthday dinner, or having annual family celebrations are all great ways to stay in touch and connect with family and friends you may not see on a regular basis. If a distant relative or family friend I hadn’t seen in a long time happened to be in Boston and offered to take me out to dinner to ‘catch up,’ you can bet I’d accept. Food is a beautiful thing since it can bring people together and keep loved ones close. Consider how many times you’ve texted a friend to say something like, “Hey, want to get ice cream?” or “Rise and shine, we’re going to brunch.” Many social gatherings are oriented around food, even if you aren’t aware of it. Dinner parties for birthdays or holidays, city trips, lunch dates, cocktail parties, happy hours, and even pizza parties in your dorm room are all possibilities. When someone says “there will be food,” a large number of people are likely to attend the event or social gathering. People bond over their favorite foods, and many different communities, such as the vegan community, have sprung up around similar diets. Everything is more enjoyable with food, and it’s a terrific way to bring friends together and interact with others!
