IMPACT IN THE UNITED STATES
Educating the public about culture and diversity through Destination Dinners hosted across Atlanta and Washington D.C. We have partnered with over 40 countries to showcase authentic representation of the community and discuss current issues. Topics range from the Lebanon-Syria crisis, how West Africa handled Ebola, to Brazil’s preparation for the upcoming Olympics.
By hosting events at family and immigrant-run ethnic restaurants, we promote small businesses. Food is the easiest way for anyone to break the ice and learn about another culture, and our dinners facilitate an ongoing interest in international learning.
Breaking down barriers and stereotypes by hosting discussions on important topics that affect today’s citizens. We bring thought leaders to present factual content on the religion of Islam and the role of Muslim women in society.
Through Go Eat Give’s meaning travel opportunities, travelers have gone to Cuba, India, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico and Kenya. They have interacted with the local community, learned about their culture, and brought back memories to last a lifetime.
Our partner programs benefit throughout the year by receiving awareness, monetary donations, and volunteer hours.
Cuba – UBPC Vivero Organopónico Alamar is the first organic cooperative farm run by 100 Cuban families. They are able to keep the proceeds from their sales and collectively progress the community they live in. Go Eat Give is the first and only nonprofit organization that does hands on volunteer work at the farm in Cuba.
We also supports Cuban artist José Fuster by participating in his community art project to raise awareness of current issues and help beautify the neighborhood.
