When I saw the following information, I had to share it. It is such a wonderful program where you can share a holiday meal with others you don’t know. I can remember being guests at a home in New Zealand, and it was absolutely delightful.

Whether traveling, away from home or alone for the holidays, MealSharing.com is connecting hosts and guests in more than 450 cities worldwide over home cooked meals this holiday season, including Channukah, Christmas and New Year’s. MealSharing.com is promoting community and generosity this holiday season by donating $10 to Feeding America for every guest at a MealSharing dinner between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day. Anyone who wants to meet new people and make new connections over the holidays can participate in a MealSharing.com dinner by making a free account to host or join a meal. Hosts simply create a meal on MealSharing.com specifying what they are making, how many people can come to their table and the optional “chip-in” price (average $8) per person to help offset the cost of ingredients. Then, guests can easily search for meals, see reviews for past dinners from each host and view the menu for upcoming meals.


A global leader in the new “sharing economy” trend, MealSharing.com is a website that connects travelers and locals over home cooked meals with the goal to build more connected communities through approachable, home cooking. Founder Jay Savsani created MealSharing.com after experiencing an unforgettable, home cooked meal experience while traveling in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Available in more than 450 cities worldwide, MealSharing.com has the more places to eat in homes than any other website. Anyone can host or attend a meal by visiting www.mealsharing.com and hosting or requesting a meal. Hosts can accommodate one or many guests per meal and an optional “chip in” is available to help offset the price of ingredients.  Afterwards, guests and hosts review their experience for trust and safety. For more information, please visit www.mealsharing.com.

MealSharing.com was founded by Jay Savsani.
