Why this Eat Your World tour? Laura has long loved showing people around her incredibly multicultural NYC neighborhood of Jackson Heights, Queens, where she’s lived for 15 years and has led food tours for more than a decade. She’s also a mom to two boys, and growing up here, they’ve developed adventurous palates and a curiosity about the world. With this tour, she hopes to share that with other families wishing to expose their children to new cultures and foods from around the world, in a fascinating off-the-beaten-path NYC neighborhood.
As with other EYW tours, we donate a portion of our tour proceeds back to the neighborhood (via a local food pantry, local immigrant-rights nonprofit Make the Road NY or restaurant-food relief nonprofit Queens Together, or another worthy cause), and we make efforts to “green” this tour via things like compostable utensils and plates, and reusable containers where possible. (And we do actually collect and compost the biodegradable things we use!)
