Madre Supports Eat Like A Local 

In conjunction with International Women’s Day, Madre have launched a fundraising initiative working with Mexican food tour company Eat Like A Local, to support women in Mexico City with their education and opportunities.

Born and bred in Mexico City, Rocio Vazquez Landeta founded the food tour company Eat Like Local in 2018. The business was inspired by a stint travelling; shocked by the tourist traps, overpriced restaurants and umbrella tours, it was on a night out in Istanbul, drinking and being shown the city by a group of homeless guys, that she realised seeing a city with the locals was how you really experience it. From here Eat Like A Local grew, taking hundreds of visitors a year around the markets, introducing them to the local street food vendors and giving them a true experience of what Mexico City’s food and drink scene had to offer.

Setting up a social programme, Eat Like A Local now work to support young females in the La Merced and Jamaica Markets. As Rocio explains “the main goal of the program is to expose kids from La Merced and Jamaica Markets to kindness, feminism, inclusion, respect, and love. We teach them to say no, that their voice matter, that they can leave any situation when they feel uncomfortable. We teach them to set boundaries, self-love, and self-care; we teach them everything we wish someone told us when we were kids growing up in a misogynistic world. We want to show them that education can actually lead to a better life and that knowledge can set them free, that they are not powerless. It is about cultural exchange, great ideas, and great people is about creating the world we want to live in, by changing one kid at a time.”

To support Eat Like a Local and their social programme, throughout the month of March, Madre will be adding a £1 donation to bills when serving tap water. These donations will be collated and sent to Rocio and the team with the specific aim of helping one female in particular who is currently trying to save money to study outside of Mexico due to the mafia becoming increasingly violent in her market.
