About E.A.T.

E.A.T. Foundation is a pop-up dining experience bringing engaged and energetic individuals from the community into exciting and unique venues to share a meal prepared by a local up and coming chef.

Events & Tickets

When you share a meal with someone, in reality you do so much more. You are able to decompress, reinvigorate yourself, and reconnect to those around you.

Get Involved

E.A.T. is unlike anything you have previously experienced: The camaraderie, the novelty, the altruistic intent of the evening combine to create an environment that is meaningful, memorable, important.
