If you’ve ever enjoyed a Dishcrawl Louisville, the new and popular progressive dinner service here, you’ll be interested also in Neighborfood, a first-time event combining the walk-and-graze nature of Dishcrawl with elements of a communitywide fundraiser food fest.

On Saturday, June 29, from 2-5 p.m., eight St. Matthews restaurants and/or vendors, all within walking distance of one another, will be open for Neighborfood. For $40, attendees can visit each restaurant for heaps of bites, and also take advantage of adult beverage specials.

According to organizer Ashley Taylor, the list of participating restaurants includes:

  • The Fishery
  • Superchef at the Seafood Connection
  • Coals Pizza
  • Mellow Mushroom Pizza
  • Bluegrass BBQ
  • Art Eatables (bringing branded desserts)
  • Paleta Pop Culture (vendor)
  • Gelato Gilberto (bringing their truck)

Neighborfood will donate a portion of its profits to several charities, including Orphan Care Alliance (whose mission is to serve the fatherless), St. Benedict Center for Early Childhood Education (a child care and early learning center supported by the United Way), Supporting Heroes (helps families of police, fire and EMS heroes killed in the line of duty), No Kill Louisville (which works to see all Louisville pets adopted rather than killed) and the Home of the Innocents (which provides assistance to children facing severe crises).

Additionally, Green BEAN Delivery will donate one pound of food for every ticket sold to Orphan Care Alliance, which feeds hundreds of children annually. That means charities benefit both financially and through the input of fresh, organic produce put on the tables of the children in our community who need it the most.

“We started Neighborfood to rejoice and share in the things we love most: food, family, and our neighborhood,” Dishcrawl founder, Tracy Lee, said in a news release.
