ThanksSharing Returns for its Second Year

Oct 17, 2014 10:15AM ● By Erica Shames

MealSharing.com announces its second “ThanksSharing” to promote food and togetherness for the classic American holiday. Dubbed the “AirBnB of Home Cooked Meals,” MealSharing.com connects hosts and guests in more than 450 cities worldwide over home cooked meals. This year, MealSharing.com will continue its ThanksSharing initiative to connect thousands of people over one very special meal—Thanksgiving.   

“Last year’s ThanksSharing helped people enjoy a meal with others who otherwise would have been eating alone,” says Jay Savsani, founder of MealSharing.com. “As a popular celebration that promotes people coming together over food, ThanksSharing does just that—whether a person is traveling, alone for the holiday or simply wants a different experience—ThanksSharing is helping connect people over home cooked meals for a special occasion.”

To host a ThanksSharing event, 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 per person to help offset the cost of ingredients. Then, by selecting ThanksSharing as the type of meal, guests from around the world can easily search and join a ThanksSharing dinner with one click. A special ThanksSharing webpage for those seeking a meal will also be readily available, with even a potluck feature to promote community involvement.

In addition, ThanksSharing hosts will be able to raise money for local food banks through the MealSharing.com platform. To urge participation, MealSharing.com will offer meal credits to any hosts that open up their table to guests for ThanksSharing.
