Welcome to Food for Thought. We're a dining and discussion group that meets regularly for dinner and interesting in-depth conversation. The group was started to bring together intelligent people who like dining together and having the kinds of discussions they don't get enough of elsewhere. Our dinners are held at low key restaurants that have good food and facilitate good group communication. In addition, we may also go to movies, lectures, or other events that engender thoughtful discussion at a restaurant afterwards. In warmer weather, picnics may also be scheduled.

Our events won't necessarily have a particular discussion topic, but an "ice breaker" question may be suggested as a way of introducing yourself to the group.

Although the group is based near Cambridge/Somerville , our intention is to hold events in different parts of the Boston area, to allow folks from those areas to conveniently participate.

Come join us and be a part of our community.
