any one go on an event by culinary adventure company???
I'm not sure this is what you mean, but I've gone on many, many walking tours of every major city I've lived in; more often than not led by a chef of local repute who knew where to seek out the goods. Marvelous experience, but definitely not connected to a church or charity of any kind. For your questions on apportionment of funds collected, you should contact the website of the place you're talking about - it should be listed there, or you should be given information about a contact that can answer your questions. The tours I participated in were excellent value for the money, and generally stops were taken along the way at restaurants that I'd otherwise know nothing about. Fantastic experiences, all.
