''Niente ci unisce più del nostro bisogno universale di cibo". Sia che ci troviamo a New York, a Parigi o in una piccola fattoria in Kenya, tutti vogliamo sederci con le nostre famiglie ed amici e, alla fine della giornata, condividere insieme del cibo.

Ricette per il Cambiamento vuol far parte di questa condivisione e far sì che il vostro pasto principale non sia esclusivamente un momento di incontro con i vostri cari, ma anche un'opportunità di apertura verso gli altri.  
Le ricette provenienti da paesi in via di sviluppo vi daranno infatti un assaggio di altri paesi, offrendovi infatti la possibilità di cucinare lo stesso pasto della famiglia Hong nel Delta del Mekong o di Olive Bibutsuwahoze e della sua famiglia in Ruanda.
