CurEat Raleigh Scavenger Hunt

Discover Raleigh through a scavenger hunt style event to benefit the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle

If you support the local food scene, love solving riddles, and want to meet some of Raleigh’s top culinary talent while enjoying good food and drink, then you’ll want to join the first CurEat Raleigh Scavenger Hunt. (Word is that the grand prize for the winning team is a trip to Nashville, TN.)

Sounds amazing! Tell me more.

Thirteen teams will have the opportunity to compete in the first CurEat Raleigh Scavenger Hunt, and registration is now officially open. If you are the first person to register and claim a team, you will be the team captain and can invite your friends to register.  Registration is $100 per person, which will go toward your team’s fundraising goal of $1,500. Teams that raise over $2,000 will have opportunities to unlock additional clues throughout the event. Registration closes Friday, March 1.

What if the spots fill up before I have a chance to register?

You can still buy a ticket to the after-party at Transfer Co. Food Hall and/or donate to one of the teams to help them meet their fundraising targets for the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle Agriculture Education Program.
