Food First Tours: Travel With a Purpose (and an Appetite)
In a perfect world, there would be no poverty, hunger, or dictators.
Unfortunately, we live in an imperfect world where idiots abound and money rules and corrupts. Sometimes, donations and volunteering at the local YMCA is not enough to fill the pang in your stomach. Why not get more out of your next vacation? Stop booking that trip to Aspen NOW.
explore the world like a gastronome without shelling out the time
to study. With the crazy rise in interest in food, these trips are
changing the very nature of travel and the confines of the food world
itself. Learn the intricacies of a country's food sovereignty, and even
though you're on a vacation, you'll learn the skills needed to possibly
make a change in your own community.
First, you'll get a behind-the-scenes look at the very nature of the
industry that you never get a chance to see, and we promise you won't get
arrested for it. Visit farms; meet the farmers; see the animals; learn
how olive oil, wine, and tortillas are produced; ride a bike through
vineyards; and lend a hand on farms. A large emphasis will be placed on
the eating and drinking of local fare and understanding the local
traditions, but that goes without saying.
from rallying in D.C. to figuring out ways to better use farms in Third World countries, members are not afraid to get dirty. Most tour groups
consist of six people, but if you're interested in setting up your own
group and itinerary (think bespoke), it can do that for you too.
