Vancouver, B.C. (May 1, 2023): Vancouver Foodie Tours is excited to announce the relaunch of its award-winning Gastronomic Gastown Tour, which takes guests on a journey through the historic streets of Gastown while indulging in three-course meals at iconic restaurants. The tour is designed to bring people together, spark conversations, and foster a deeper sense of community, which is why Vancouver Foodie Tours will offer entrepreneurial workshops through Employ to Empower to help residents of downtown eastside build resilience and confidence in their entrepreneurship journey. Bookings to the Gastronomic Gastown Tour are available at foodietours.ca.
“We are pleased to relaunch the Gastronomic Gastown Tour to offer authentic Vancouver experiences that foster meaningful connections,” said Michelle Ng, Founder of Vancouver Foodie Tours and Granville Island Delivery Co. “On our food tours, we strive to cultivate meaningful connections with both food and people, while showcasing creative flavours and shining a spotlight on the incredible work being done by women in Gastown. This is why our commitment to connection doesn’t end at the table. We are proud to work with Employ to Empower to further support the lives of women in our community.”
“At Employ to Empower, we know that when a crisis hits, having a support system can make all the difference,” said Christina Wong, Executive Director and Co-Founder, Employ to Empower. “Many people who access services in the Downtown Eastside (DTES) don’t have a social support system. That is why we use entrepreneurship as a way to cultivate belonging and community, so that people, not just businesses, can flourish. Through workshops in partnership with Vancouver Foodie Tours, we can empower those facing work and social barriers to eventually become confident enough to help others, creating a ripple effect of change and a sustainable circular economy.”
The Gastronomic Gastown Tour runs from Thursdays through Mondays, and is open year-round, from 4-7 p.m. Pricing for tours begin at $159.99 per guest, with an option to include wine or cocktail pairings for an additional $30 fee. Establishments that are part of the tour include Monarca Cocina Mexicana, Kozak, Jules, and Gastronomy Gastown. Guests will have the opportunity to learn the history and inspiring stories of those who are thriving in the community, and a newfound appreciation for Vancouver’s iconic neighbourhood. The tour has received the Canadian Signature Experience designation by Destination Canada.
