Let’s Eat

There is power when people eat together. That’s something we have learned at The Portico’s 1001 Gathering. When we put our knees under tables, share a meal and have conversation, relationships are formed. Strangers become acquaintances. Over time, acquaintances become friends. And together we participate in connection and community change.
