How to Share Thanksgiving with New Friends from Bangkok to Bilbao
This Thursday, the website MealSharing.com ("the AirBnB of home cooked meals") is hosting its second annual ThanksSharing event in an effort to make sure that no one spends Thanksgiving alone.
The website MealSharing.com calls itself "the AirBnB of home cooked meals," connecting diners with hosts for home cooked meals around the world. Since launching in 2012 in Chicago and Berlin, the site can now match travelers with locals in over 450 cities worldwide - an awesome way to get to know new friends when traveling, or to dine with enthusiastic cooks in your own community. Guests can choose their hosts based on food photos, bio information, descriptions of what the menu will include and reviews from past diners. This Thursday, for the foodiest of American holidays, the site is hosting its second annual ThanksSharing event in an effort to make sure that no one spends Thanksgiving alone. Amateur cooks in cities like São Paulo, Oakland, Hyderabad, Louisville, Madrid, Baltimore, Bangkok and New York City will open their homes to guests who register for a meal through the website; many hosts offer Thanksgiving meals for free, with an optional "chip in" fee.
