Luke 5:28 And Levi made Him a great feast in his house, and there was a large company of tax collectors and others reclining at table with them.
In this verse, Levi shows how the message about Jesus was spread: through hospitality and personal invitation. Not so much preaching or outreach; simply touching everyone that he knew in a non-threatening context: food.
Food speaks loud and clear to many people. This is a great relationship building and outreach strategy. It works for adults, teens, children; for men and women; neighbours and business. Everyone loves food and mellows a little after a good meal.
Could you invite some folk round and just do food together as a means of getting to know them and finding out who they really are?
