Kai
Share Kai is a collaboration between InCommon and Mahia Te Aroha using food as a gentle entry point into what can become deep, important and identity-level conversations.

Utilising InCommon conversation starters Share Kai events encourage neighbours, students, workmates to get to know those around the table, exploring favourite meals and memories and themes of culture, belonging and diversity.

From February – May 2023 we are piloting several versions of Share Kai, following which a Share Kai toolkit will be available to support your community, school or workplace to host your own Share Kai events.

We hope you’ll join us at our events to share kai and kōrero!
