After the heartwarmingly positive reception to last year’s special event tour, Columbus Food Adventures is once again pleased to partner with Community Refugee and Immigration Services (CRIS) on a unique fundraiser featuring restaurant favorites of the local immigrant and refugee communities. Last year, we raised over $1,800 for the CRIS, and hope exceed that this year. On August 30th, 31st and September 1st, this year’s tour will visit restaurants featuring Nepalese, Senegalese, Yemeni, and Somali cuisines. All proceeds will benefit CRIS, and deliciousness is guaranteed!
We continue to be particularly enthused about this tour since it cuts to the heart of why we started Columbus Food Adventures in the first place – to celebrate the diversity of amazing food the city has to offer, and to create the cross-cultural connections that dining fearlessly and discussing what you’ve eaten facilitates. Organizations like CRIS create the foundation for this, by providing the orientation and education necessary to allow future immigrant restaurateurs to adapt to Columbus as their new home and to thrive here.
This tour will be conducted three times – on August 30th, 31st and September 1st, at 6pm, and costs $70 per person*. All food is included in the cost, and every cent of profit will be donated to CRIS. All of the stops are restaurants that we have never taken tour groups to before. To reserve your spot on the tour, please visit our website.
