CA 2016 World Food Passport Program

CA 2016 word food passport

The World Food Passport program celebrates the wide range of restaurants, cuisine and cultures available in Columbia/Howard County. It is designed to encourage a wide range of diners — from families with children to adventurous foodies — to explore international culinary diversity as they dine at local participating restaurants.

How It Works

Diners pick up a World Food Passport and take the Passport with them when dining at a participating restaurant [link that jumps to restaurant list at bottom]. Restaurants are grouped into six world categories. After eating, when paying their bill, diners can request one stamp in their passport in the appropriate category. Restaurant staff will fill in the name of the restaurant and the date. Once passport holders have one stamp in each of the six world categories of their passport, they can enter a quarterly drawing to win a $25 restaurant gift certificate. The first year of the World Food Passport program will run from March 16, 2015 to March 31, 2016.
