So, What is Foodie4Access CLT?

So, What is Foodie4AccessCLT

So, now that you understand the original concept behind F4A, now I bet you are asking why then is there something called Foodie4AccessCLT (F4ACLT)?

Foodie4AccessCLT is a nonprofit that focuses on maximizing the number of people with disabilities who attend educational, social and cultural events, as well as participate in great, accessible food destinations in Charlotte, North Carolina. F4ACLT works with local disability advocates, disability-related nonprofits or other groups to increase the number of people with disabilities, or families with a child with a disability) who get out to eat, learn and connect about town to discuss all things foodie, social, accessible and/or cultural.

You don't have to have a specific disability to be a part of F4ACLT. We welcome anyone who wants to be a part of a growing group of consciously aware people who celebrate inclusion, connection, and empowerment for all people, including those who have a disability.

The blog will follow along as I go to fantastic restaurants run by great chefs and their staff, who get the big picture of inclusion. We will be a part of social events around town, philanthropic efforts to raise funds for outings or donate necessities to help others, and community focused gatherings. We want to talk to those of you who want to make a difference in Charlotte; who want to see the community of people with disabilities strong, connected and involved in their community. 

The ultimate purpose of F4ACLT is to eat great food, support each other in our endeavors, and celebrate all of who we are on this journey of life. 

Hope you enjoy the ride!

  1. Hello, Judith! We talked back in 2012 when you contacted me to request a copy of the ACCESS North Carolina travel guide. You also told me about The Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar, and I have eaten there several times in Raleigh -- very yummy! :) I now work as a Systems Change Manager at the North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities (NCCDD), where I coordinate NC ADA Network activities. One of our grassroots groups, the Self Advocates of Mecklenburg, wants to do an ADA project involving how accessible restaurant menus are, and I thought you might be interested in this project. Please contact me at or call me at 919-518-9525 for more information. Thank you very much, and I hope to hear from you very soon! :)
