Carpe DC Food Tours tells the stories of DC neighborhoods through food. Our tours highlight a number of locally owned restaurants, the stories of their owners and how they fit into the changing culture of the neighborhood. We are committed to supporting the district through sharing its culinary culture and preservation of history, elevating the stories of those who make the neighborhoods unique and through our one for one program. For each ticket purchased, a portion is donated to our partner charity, Bread for the City, and feeds one local resident in need for a day.
