WHO WE SUPPORT
Creating a positive social impact
For every person that joins a tour we donate a meal to someone in need.
Each culinary experience is linked to an association that helps create a positive social impact on the city, the region or the continent.
We believe we still live in a world with social prejudice and travel is the best antidote!
We believe food is the best way to connect with people and get to know a place and culture, that’s why we created Eat One Feed One.
We’ve created a bridge between open minded amazing food oriented travelers and, associations that create a difference in society by supporting and empowering people in need, through food and inclusion.
These tours are an opportunity to travel, discover a new place, have an amazingly delicious time and take a memorable experience with you home. It’s also the chance to give something back to the place you visit and create a positive social impact through your choices and love of food.
the associations we work with
San Sebastian's local soup kitchen
San Sebastian has two soup kitchens run by a world charity organization with a local base: Caritas. The meals in Aterpe's soup kitchen are cooked by volunteers and in Hotzaldi they use work with a catering company.
They base their social action on welcoming and accompanying vulnerable and socially excluded people, and use food as a first point of contact for people in need.
They promote empowerment of people and work towards defending human rights of those they work with through three areas of integral development: to cover basic needs, life’s purpose and social participation.
They welcome and attend the basic needs of homeless people and accompany them to improve their quality of life so they can initiate a processes of personal autonomy as far as possible.
For every person that joins a pintxos tour we donate the equivalent of a meal to these soup kitchens.

zaporeak who cook meals for refugees
Zaporeak means flavours in Basque. This kitchen in Greece was started by a father and son duo who promoted projects that combine food & solidarity. Using the Basque Country's culinary strength, they aim to help people in with food scarcity problems in refugee camps.
Since 2016, Zaporeak has been helping refugees fleeing war and many who are stranded in Greece. Volunteers travel and cook there to distribute decent, wholesome meals among refugees.
The first year they worked on Chios island and since October 2017 they’ve been based in the Victoria Social Center in Athens. They have already cooked 1.000.000 meals and everyday they prepare 1300 meals in their kitchen. They’re also in charge of delivering these meals to families in Lesvos in the Moria refugee camp. They collaborate with Team Humanity a Danish non profit humanitarian organization.
They will continue working while refugees need help. We are proud to support their amazing work.
For every person who joins our Just Desserts tour or one of our Online Experiences, we donate the equivalent of a meal to Zaporeak.
