Freedom A La Cart: Eat Up Columbus


On Saturday, September 4, 2021, Labor Day weekend kicked off with the return of the culinary adventure Eat Up Columbus, a dinner party hosted by Freedom A La Cart. Celebrating community, collaboration, and cause cuisine, the event was held to support Freedom a la Cart’s work to empower and employ survivors of human trafficking. Hosted in the heart of Columbus, close to Freedom A La Cart’s new cafe & bakery, the dinner party picnic called for guests to dress in all white - like a blank canvas and fresh start which is given to survivors going through Freedom A La Cart’s program. Along with the spirit of collaboration, there was a silent auction with local businesses and artists, picnic packages in partnership with local restaurants, a table decorating competition, and live music. Overall the event raised over $120,000 towards Freedom A La Cart’s mission and will continue to empower, educate and employ victims of human trafficking.
