ABC Food Tours has partnered with Lower East Side community schools  in creating a program where we take their students on a “Young Explorers Food Tour.” When you sponsor a child’s tour, it allows them to learn the history of the city & community, engage in conversation surrounding important topics like “gentrification,” access to local entrepreneurial business owners, and experience the food that has made these restaurants staples not only in the LES but in New York City.
