Dining Dashers - an event in which we take about 25-50 foodies to local restaurants about 3-4 times a month. Most attendees are first timers at each restaurant, and it has been a great way to introduce restaurateurs and their stories to new groups as they put their best foot forward. Every meal has been a blast, and it has been so rewarding to watch complete strangers become friends over delicious food that brings us so much joy. Community Support of Food Service Workers - Taco Bell Joe! Joe has become a local celebrity, simply from his smiling face and how he calls everyone “friend” - and genuinely means it. Our community came together to present Joe with a holiday bonus from his “friends” for $6100. Taco Bell Joe’s story made national news, and warmed all of hearts when we needed it most. Restaurant Job Connection (Volusia County) - Many great restaurants have been connected to hard working employees since the group has started. Our community is working together to create solutions for our small businesses and to make this an even better place to live.

Welcome, Foodies! You’re about to join one of the most active foodie groups who love to support our local restaurateurs.

Our online community banded together to support and show off our delicious finds to each other and to the now 30,000 (and growing) members. Food brought us all back together. The tone has, and always will be, POSITIVE reviews with the GREAT experiences we all have while dining around town. Here are some reasons to join in the fun:
