Philadelphia Hosts Largest Communal 70×7 The Meal



Picture this ” a long communal table stretching across historic Philadelphia from Independence Hall to the National Constitution Center. 900 people, picked by lottery though the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, coming together for one meal co-hosted by artists Jorge and Lucy Orta (founders of the 70 x 7 The Meal) and menu cultivated by celebrity chef, Marc Vetri. The goal is to get conversation started about heirloom foods and the need for all people to have good quality food available to them. These dinners have been done all over Europe with the Ortas who design the table’s intricate table runner and one of a kind plates.
