Don't Feast Alone 2018

Donate Now


In 2018, we started a campaign to make more scholarships of our Association's food tourism education products available to people in need, i.e. students and recent graduates, the unemployed, the homeless, those with a disability of any kind, and those with any other demonstrable need. In 2018, scholarships were granted for our Association's educational products to 48 individuals in need. We hope to break that record by a huge number in 2019, and we need your help to do that.

 The name of our campaign, "Don't Feast Alone," was inspired by the feeling of camaraderie and giving back that we all experience as the holidays approach at the end of each year. We're asking for you to think about giving back to those in need, and help support our scholarship fund. When you donate, you get the goodies shown below, and we also show you what your donation will buy for a person in need.

You can always donate any lower amount that you wish (without any award) and your contribution will still be applied to our Food Tourism Scholarship Fund. Read more about our Scholarship Fund and the application process here.


Don't just take our word for it. Daniela Nardi (pictured left), 2018 scholarship recipient, had this to say about the scholarship she received to attend FoodTreX London:


"This was a fantastic opportunity to hear from leaders in the Food Travel Industry. Thanks to the scholarship I was able to attend, meet and network with Ambassadors, Entrepreneurs and Consultants to share ideas and experiences".


Daniela is a student of Hospitality Management (BA) at the University of Greenwich - London, and a personal chef.  Thanks to generous support from people like YOU, Daniela and her career are able to benefit from education like this, at no cost to her. This is why we need your support.
