Local food tour company expands community support with non-profit fundraising program

OAKLAND – (November 29) – With $1 from every tour ticket sold, Local Food Adventures announces today that it will donate $429 to the Alameda County Community Food Bank in celebration of #GivingTuesday, a national initiative devoted to charitable giving following the frenzy of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
“Ever since our first tour we have donated to the food bank,” Lauren McCabe Herpich, owner of Local Food Adventures, says. “As our guests are enjoying food on the tour, I wanted to make sure that our neighbors in need are able to enjoy food as well.”
Giving Tuesday donation to Alameda County Community Food Bank

According to the Alameda County Community Food Bank, one in five county residents are served by the organization’s efforts. By donating on #GivingTuesday, Local Food Adventure’s donation will be matched by the generous support of local green coffee importer Royal Coffee, Inc. and other donors. Today every dollar donated will equal $12 of food.

Because of its successful partnership with the food bank, Local Food Adventures also announces today the launch of its non-profit fundraising program which helps more local 501(c)(3) organizations raise money through food. Groups can earn 10-20% back for each ticket and private food tour it sells through its website or grassroots efforts.

“We’ve seen first-hand what the food bank can do with $1,” Herpich says, “now we want to help more local non-profits raise money and do more good in our community.”
