Initial Position

Since people switch places several times a day, always in a hurry, there is less and less time for communication and exchange. Instead of eating within the family at a fixed place at home, people eat along the way. There is often no time to enjoy food together. But culture of eating is always linked to sociality. Without sharing the customs, important aspects of culture will get lost. 

Eating in restaurants instead of eating at home offers the possibility to meat a much more heterogeneous group of people. Exchange within this group could enrich a community. Furthermore a concept of imparting values and knowledge independent from static family structures could fit much better to the diverse society.
