“I’ve always wished I could taste the foods being prepared on my favorite cooking shows. We can do that with this Food Tour Box by creating a delicious and immersive experience that people can experience at home. Ultimately, at a time when there is so much fear, we want the ATL Food Tour Box to promote hope — the story we tell in the ATL Food Tour Box is one of resilience, the resilience of the Municipal Market and vendors who operate within it today,” said Akila McConnell, Unexpected Atlanta’s owner, in a statement.

The box not only provides Atlantans with a way to connect to the local food community inside their homes, it also supports small businesses in the area. A portion of the proceeds from ATL Food Tour Box will go toward the Giving Kitchen, a nonprofit organization in Atlanta that gives emergency help to food service workers. The organization is also accepting donations amid the coronavirus pandemic.
