Care and Share Benefit Tour
Sunday, April 9, 2017
Update: Because of your support, we were able to donate $337 to Care and Share in 2017! Please check back for the 2018 date.
We are proud to partner with local non-profit, Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado, in their effort to eradicate hunger in our region. We believe in their mission to bridge the gap between hunger and abundance, and we also feel strongly that we all bear some responsibility toward that end.
Care and Share estimates that one in every seven people struggles with hunger in Southern Colorado. Even more devastating, 20% of children don’t have enough nutritious food to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
That’s why we’ve decided to help.
In 2017, we will host a food tour and donate 100% of our proceeds to Care and Share!
Tickets are now available for this tour! Please join us in our community’s fight against hunger. No one should go hungry!
The Care and Share Benefit Tour will only occur once in 2017 and is the same tour route as the Delicious Downtown Food Tour. When you’re ready to purchase tickets, click the pink “Book Now” button.
