What to Expect

           Eat Up Columbus is a culinary adventure celebrating community, collaboration and cause cuisine. The annual event shares a “dinner party” theme, basking in the spirit of underground supper clubs which debuted Freedom a la Cart to the Columbus dining scene. Eat Up Columbus is a celebratory evening for guests, and supports an important cause in our community: Freedom a la Cart’s work to empower and employ survivors of human trafficking. 



        This year, Freedom a la Cart will host Eat Up Columbus outdoors, in the heart of the city near our new café + bakery and Freedom Loft on Spring Street. Inspired by the elegant picnic theme of popular “Diner en Blanc” parties around the world, the location of Eat Up 2021 will be kept a secret until the night of the event, and will occur rain or shine. Guests will arrive at a secret downtown location and are encouraged to dress in white. Like a blank, white canvas, the survivors we serve are given a fresh start and a new beginning. Tables will line the outdoor space transformed into an elegant urban oasis where community friends will gather to share a meal, hear stories of impact and raise funds to support Freedom a la Cart.  



          The evening will center upon engaging in intentional conversation, uniting behind our cause, and enjoying the presence of one another after a long awaited time! The event will include live music, a silent auction, a table decorating competition, options for dinner from local Columbus restaurants, and much more! 



          Freedom a la Cart is partnering with local restaurants, like us, who will be offering our own Eat Up Picnic Packages for event guests to purchase and bring to the event.
