A restaurant in the town of Netanya, Israel, is now offering free hummus to Jews and Arabs who dine together. Although hummus is a popular Middle-Eastern dish, the chickpea-based dip is not often thought of as a diplomacy tool. This restaurant believes that the tasty dish can be used a way to bring people together.

The 'Hummus Bar' is now offering free hummus for Jews and Arabs who choose to eat together. Not only do these diners receive a free serving of hummus, but they can also request unlimited refills of the delicious chickpea dip. The idea is to use a beloved dish to help people overcome their differences and ultimately ease Israeli-Palestinian tensions. As cafe manager Kobi Tzafrir explains, "If there’s anything that can bring together these peoples, it’s hummus."

The heart-warming initiative demonstrates how food can be a powerful tool for bringing people together.
