Giving back to our community…
Here at Triangle Food Tours, we deeply value the spirit of giving and are committed to supporting our local community. We do that by giving to and partnering with organizations who are making a difference in the Triangle area every day. Here are some ways we have found to give back.
Inter-Faith Food Shuttle
The Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is working to solve hunger and food insecurity in the Triangle area, through hunger relief, community health education, farms & gardens, and more. They recover 6 million pounds of food that would otherwise go to waste and provide food assistance through programs like Backpack Buddies, Summer Meals Food Truck, Grocery Bags for Seniors, and much more.
We like getting our hands dirty volunteering at various IFFS Triangle Farms. When purchasing a food tour ticket on our website, guests can make a donation to IFFS and we match the total donations quarterly.
