Building Community One Meal and One Relationship at a Time

Sharing a meal around the table is commonplace in our society. Who we invite – or who we do not invite – to the table holds meaning. Today when people do not know each other, broad assumptions and judgements are made, often based on minimal truth and little understanding. As a result, individuals and communities can become disconnected and remain suspicious of one another.

Peace Meals offers a path forward to build community and understanding across lines of religious and cultural division by gathering at the common table for food, friendship, and hospitality. Peace Meals gathers people from different faith traditions and religious identities who commit to meet together six times to share a meal and honest discussion, with the goal of building greater awareness and understanding of each other’s worldviews, questions, concerns, and hopes.

Open to all UST students of all religious identities or no religious identity.

This program is facilitated and sponsored by Peace Meals, a program of Outreach Opportunities, in collaboration with the Jay Phillips Center for Interfaith Learning, the Office for Spirituality, the Office for Service and Social Justice, and the Muslim Christian Dialogue Center at the University of St. Thomas.
