Housebound across the world_how to still indulge (oneself)

The project in 2 words:

COVID-19 is a global economics catastrophe with dramatic social repercussions. To contribute to the movements of generosity flourishing here and there on a global scale, we have thought over a project that would have a meaning, that would benefit the members, that would be useful to the contributors and that would help make things a bit better


Creators and origins of the project 

Audrey working in the digital world is 100% on home office. Lorraine in a restaurant, doesn't work for now. The starting point happened 6 weeks after confinement was decided for France (March 17, 2020). We realized we could be of some help and the idea was to do it on several levels and according to our means (both financial and budget-wise). We realized we were always eating the same kinds of food and we definitely couldn't say that we cooked nice meals. Like what happened on a Facebook group, the idea was to have people participate asking them to share their home-made meals. It's more engaging than taking a mere picture, but also way "richer" in the end. And it's also the opportunity of a culinary narrow escape.

The project needs more members so feel free to join! The more members we'll get, the more interactions and content, the more meaningful all this will become!


The project in details

COVID-19 is a global economics catastrophe with dramatic social repercussions. To contribute to the movements of generosity flourishing here and there on a global scale, we have thought over a project that would have a meaning, that would benefit the members, that would be useful to the contributors and that would help make things a bit better

Hence we decided to create a Facebook group: "Food & Drinks (with love) from home".

The idea: bring people from all over the world together around one of the few pleasures left when you're stuck at home: food :)

With more than 600 members in a couple weeks, and several hundreds of pictures already, receipes, exchanges, this group is kind, provides good ideas on what to cook next, breaks the isolation of some persons, bring back self-confidence, restores the taste of cooking! After all, it's not because the restaurants are closed that we can't take pictures of what we eat and share our meals.  

The aim is to make a "souvenir" book out of it in this "out of time period", with (notably): 

- a documented intro with key figures

- photos, receipes and tips of the best 100 meals, drinks (we can cook for cheap with what's is at hands!)

- a global map with several hundreds of pictures 

- quizzes and small games

- in annex, the best humor posts on COVID-19 

As regards the date, we plan to launch the book in September

Next steps: 

- continue to grow our community

- write the book, shape it and have it printed

If we're soliciting your support today, it's to allow us to make sure there's a bigger interest for such a project (a cookbook "out of time" in a inclusive mode), get your comments and suggestions and an idea of the amount of your contributions.
