About Mouthful

Mouthful is a 501(c)(3) non-profit with the goal of changing the status quo by bringing students from disadvantaged backgrounds together with influential figures over a dinner. Since the first Mouthful meal in San Francisco in October 2016, we have expanded to over 10 cities in the US and Europe.


Mouthful is entirely student-led, with high school students and college students around the world to organize each dinner, manage a pipeline of guests, direct activities with partner organizations, and reach out to potential funders. Recent graduates of United World College (UWC) schools participate in each dinner as Mouthful representatives.

Mouthful events are unique in their intimacy, providing room for free-flowing conversations, with topics ranging from undocumented immigration and racial inequality to peaceful protests.


Our dinners are hosted in small restaurant settings with six students, one Mouthful representative, and our guest to ensure an opportunity for every student to speak about personal experiences and opinions. 

Students are recommended and selected from our scholar organization network and are able to individually make lasting connections with the Mouthful guest.  All meal costs are covered by Mouthful thanks to our funders.
