Partnerships & Collaboration

E.A.T. Foundation is a pop-up dining experience bringing engaged and energetic individuals from your community into your venue — which can then showcase you, your mission, and your space in the best light possible.
We are able to do this through the use of the oldest and most consistently used social network on the planet: the dining table.
In addition to our track record of providing outstanding events, we are a non-profit foundation with a mission to eliminate food deserts. With each event we put on, no less than 10% of the net proceeds are reserved for this purpose.
But who, exactly, are we, and what does our community look like?

Our audience includes young to middle-aged professionals interested in novel dining experiences; those attracted to experiencing different cultures, ideas, and perspectives; and invested in the growth and strengthening of their communities.
Because of their energy and investment, they are eager to share those experiences they find most enjoyable within their own social circles and with the people around them. This makes them an ideal audience for word of mouth advertising. They can help you solidify your reputation as a venue and promote your role as an integral part of your community.
But it’s not only through our guests’ natural engagement that we will bring your venue exposure and public interest…

Want to Get Involved with E.A.T.?

The first question is: how would you like to get involved? Do you want to help us plan events in your community? Do you want to work at one of our events as a chef, server, or host? Would you like to help us with our non-profit, bringing access to healthy food options to those who lack adequate access? Is there some other vision of your participation that you have created?

Any and all of these are great, and the best way to get involved is to reach out to us directly. If you could send an email to, briefly explaining what vision of your participation you envision, we would be more than happy to speak with you directly and flesh out these ideas. Please do! We are always looking to grow our community around the table, and any way you are willing to help us achieve this goal is appreciated and welcomed.


If you would like to set a date, or simply discuss in greater detail what an event in your venue might look like, please contact Zach McElgunn, Director of Business Development, at 804.639.9213, or via email at
