BEYOND BORDERS Food BIKE TOUR
An epic international FoodIE experience
Buffalo is a city of immigrants and its foundation was built on immigrant labor. On this food tour, we’ll explore these humble beginnings and connect the city’s history to its current influx of refugee and immigrant communities – all through the lens of its savory culinary traditions. You may not find some of the sites on our Beyond Borders Food Bike Tour on Yelp, but you won’t regret it!
We’ll bike through the East Side, West Side, and Downtown, eat an amazing international progressive dinner, and learn about groundbreaking urban farming and sustainability initiatives.
