Mark Thompson knows the power of good food and good conversation. As a gourmet chef, his culinary abilities bring people to his kitchens time and time again. Which is what led him to co-found The Picnic Project.
The Picnic Project is a weekly meal served at a church in Sanford, Florida. The meal features Mark’s incredible cuisine—for free. But this isn’t a “homeless feeding program.” The Picnic Project is for everyone.
We talk with Thompson about why he brings together those on the streets as well as those in homes for a culinary experience and good conversation with friends.
