Food: The Ultimate Connector

Here at Feedr, we can't think of anything better than sitting down to enjoy a delicious meal with others. There's something magical about breaking bread together that transcends barriers and creates stronger connections. Whether it's gathering around the dinner table with loved ones or enjoying a working lunch with colleagues, sharing food can sprinkle a little extra happiness and healthiness into your life.

So, let's dig in and explore the best sharing foods and the benefits of eating together:

What are the best foods for sharing?

When it comes to sharing food, the options are endless. Whether it's on "National Best Friend's Day" on June 8th or any other workday, here are some options that'll have everyone drooling:

1. Lebanese Platter: tasty koftas, fluffy flatbread, creamy hummus, tantalising dips, and refreshing tabbouleh. It's a feast fit for royalty, and we can't get enough of it, especially from our vendor Kammoon.

2. Sushi: Need an easy special diet option? Sushi is the answer!

3. Meat Platters: Whether it's a succulent roast chicken platter, a charcuterie platter, or a veggie-friendly antipasto platter brimming with olives, dolmades, and feta, there's something for everyone to enjoy.

4. Savoury Finger Foods: Small quiches and sausage rolls are a classic crowd-pleaser and hassle-free to eat.

5. Pizza: Freshly-made pizza topped with ooey-gooey cheese—need we say more? It's a crowd-pleaser with every slice!

6. Skewers: From perfectly marinated meats to tender veggies, skewers are a flavour-packed delight that will satisfy every palate at the table. Don't forget the dipping sauces!

7. Nachos: The ideal combination of crispy, cheesy and spicy! Dive into a plateful of nachos with friends and let the fiesta begin!

8. Dumplings: These little pockets of joy are meant to be shared. Get ready for a dumpling feast that will make your taste buds dance!

9. Sweet Treats: Indulge in the delight of fresh cinnamon or tasty glazed doughnuts. They're the perfect sweet ending to any shared meal.

10. Indian Catering: Fragrant butter chicken, sizzling tandoori, pillowy naan, and aromatic lamb biryani. Our vendor Atcha offers healthy spins on Indian classics.

The advantages of sharing a meal

Now that we've tantalised your taste buds, let's dive into the benefits of sharing a meal together:

1. Stay Connected: Whether it's a casual lunch with colleagues, a cozy dinner with family and friends, or networking at a conference, dining with others strengthens bonds and builds relationships. A study by Cornell University even found that eating together can boost job performance and forge stronger connections. So, share stories, laugh, and enjoy each other's company—it's the recipe for connection.

2. Healthier Eating Habits: When we eat with others, it's like having your very own support group for making healthier choices. Studies have shown that adults tend to make better food decisions when part of a group. And let's not forget about the little ones—a study revealed that children who ate with their families were more likely to develop healthier eating habits. Together, we can nourish our bodies and souls!

3. Release Positive Emotions: Sharing a meal can do wonders for our mood. It's like adding a pinch of happiness to your day. Some studies have even suggested that dining with others can help alleviate symptoms of depression. So, gather round and savour those positive emotions together.

4. Learn Something New: Sharing a meal is a delightful way to expand your horizons. Whether you're with family or new friends, food becomes the universal language that brings everyone together. Interact with colleagues from different departments, strengthen bonds with your team, and learn about new cultures—all while indulging in delicious dishes. Bon appétit and bon voyage to new adventures!

5. Build Trust: Trust is a vital ingredient in any successful relationship. Sharing the same food with others is one of the most effective ways to build trust. It signals to our brain that the food is safe, and the people we're sharing it with can be trusted. It taps into our instinctual roots and helps foster relationships and trust within our tribes or teams. Trust us, it works like a charm!
