The Young Explorers Tour
We have partnerships with nearly a dozen restaurants in the Lower East Side along with five NYC Public Schools that we rotate our experience through. Majority of the students we work with are directly affected by homelessness and are able to participate in this experience thanks to your generous sponsorships.
Over the course of 2 hours, students will walk from restaurant to restaurant with their classmates sampling some of the best dishes NYC has to offer. These tastings are coupled with open conversations that allow our students access to local entrepreneurial business owners and restaurateurs. In transit between restaurants, we stop and highlight historical landmarks of the neighborhood as well as engage the students in discussion surrounding topics such as “gentrification” and “hygiene”.
