Know More about this tour

The sweet potato is more than just a food in Taiwan its a part of Taiwanese culture. There are cultural expressions about the sweet potato, and even the country is said to be shaped like a sweet potato. But most of all, the sweet potato is a popular street food snack, and thats where you come in! Youre going to check out the sweet potato street food scene and meet the women who cook and sell the snacks: the Sweet Potato Mamas.

Your Taipei tour will start by taking you to the base of the Sweet Potato Mama industry, the warehouse. Youll learn about the Sweet Potato Mama Program and the equipment that these women use every day in their business. The program is run by the Genesis Social Welfare Foundation, a well-known support organization in Taiwan that runs care facilities for underprivileged vegetative patients, as well as community welfare initiatives. By providing the space, training, and equipment needed, the foundation helps Sweet Potato Mamas to start their own businesses. The foundation also provides the first bag of sweet potatoes to the women free of charge, to help get the business going. Thanks to receiving these necessities, these Mamas can typically start their own business within as little as one week.

After your warehouse visit, itll be time to join the Mamas! Youre going to see how they work by working ourselves, helping them to sell sweet potatoes. Between noon and 1pm is break time for the people who work in this area but its peak hour for the Sweet Potato Mamas. Youll learn from them and help them to sell sweet potatoes right on the street, and have the opportunity to interact with all the locals who stop by.

Once your shift is over, youll be treated to a sweet potato roasted by a Mama herself a great snack after all your hard work. This tour for sure is an unforgettable experience for you!
