The Spaghetti Project - Logo

Inviting Good Things to the Table

The Spaghetti Project is a platform devoted to sharing the science and stories of human connections with global brands, communities, teams and individuals. Inspired by a 2015 Cornell study showing that firemen who eat together are better at their jobs (they save more lives!), Erica has made it her business to help people honor relationships. And as a hats-off to the firemen and their go-to firehouse meal, she calls her work the Spaghetti Project.
