Where Love Grows, in partnership with the Tampa Downtown Partnership, hosts free lunchtime walking tours featuring interesting tidbits about downtown Tampa.  The lunchtime tours are free. However, we recommend a $5.00 donation in support of our efforts to end hunger in our community.  Proceeds directly benefit our programs positively impacting those living with food insecurity every day.  Thank you for your continued support and generosity.

The concept was created by the Tampa Downtown Partnership in 2008 and transferred to Where Love Grows, a trusted community partner, in 2016. In addition to the program’s growth and expansion, we have also been able to offer local students the same experience to enjoy our culture, community and fitness experienced by adult participants along with evening tours.

The program has hosted over 250 events and has had over 7800 walkers participate over the 15 seasons. The original intent was to encourage downtown employees to go out and enjoy our city who still attend our events.  We are excited to also see the attendees who drive in just for the walks and then make a day of it enjoying other experiences or a great meal in downtown or the new Water St. area.  We are grateful to the merchants who support our program and appreciate the samples and “pop ins” they provide!

Do the Local Motion events help bring awareness to Where Love Grows’ mission to fight childhood hunger and provides an opportunity for donations or sponsorships. Walks remain free, however, a suggested donation of $5.00 per walker is appreciated to help support Where Love Grows’ mission. Proceeds directly benefit our programs fighting food insecurity for children and families in our community.
