I’ve talked a bit about potluck options for food and drink after a group ritual, but there’s another aspect worth discussing. Many people include food or drink as part of ritual itself. In some groups and practices, this is part of the Great Rite (blessing the cup and bread). In other groups and practices, it’s part of a simpler, more general, shared blessing and symbolic community meal.
The question is, though, why food, and what food?
