The Peace Meal Project... Raising Awareness One Dinner at a Time

I just came across this website for an organization called the Peace Meal Project, and it sounds like such a great idea that I wanted to share it here. As Thanksgiving approaches, I know that many people do things like volunteer at soup kitchens, etc. This would also be a great idea though too... to organize your friends and family for a meal and then gather up support for a local non-profit or organization of your choosing. Anyway, you can read more about this organization here:

The Peace Meal Project is a grassroots organization located in Boulder, Colorado. We host a series of potluck dinner parties to bring people together for socializing as well as to raise awareness and funds for charity. 

Each of our potluck gatherings benefits a charitable cause.  We assist organizations that promote a peaceful existence for the people of their communities and the world.

The Peace Meal Project is a fun way to gather with friends while supporting a good cause.  We open our homes and hearts and share good food, laughter and love. Information on local and global charities is presented at each of our potluck dinner parties.  Guests may support these causes by making a monetary donation or by volunteering their time.  We provide contact information for each organization.
