The second edition took place the last two week ends (June 2nd and June 9th) in Usaquén, an emblematic neighborhood of Bogota with a great culinary and cultural offer.
Indeed, in addition to traditional and modern Colombian food, exotic dishes from Lebanon to Italy was offered to the participants. To experience a complete meal, sweet and savory was proposed as well as drinks (from coffee to beer and rum).
As always during Eat Up Food Walks, multiple creative places were involved. This time, a coworking space, an art gallery and were added to the hype restaurants our two license takers Natalia Londoño & Daniela Moreno selected! Big thanks to them both for their great work! We look forward to working again with them!

In the last edition on april 15th, teenagers from underprivileged neighborhoods volunteered during the day to assist the chefs and waiters in the stations. This work experience is introducing them to new opportunities in life bot most importantly new horizons for life. Some of them now want to work in the catering industry, others have retrieved faith in themselves and in their future. The attestation they obtain at the end of the day is only the material proof of what working for Eat Up Food walks has brought them but you only need to talk to them to hear their enthusiasm and gratitude to know that a deeper change has been achieved.
