Our mission is to add value to Birmingham by making the area more positive, fun, and food equitable.
Woman-owned & Black-owned, MCFT Picnics is a scavenger hunt food tour and luxury pop-up picnic company started by Yawntreshia Coleman.
After two back-to-back high risk pregnancies, heart failure, postpartum depression, and COVID-19, Coleman relaunched her food tour business with scavenger hunts and luxury picnics.
For over a decade, Coleman has engaged and empowered the community to bring people together with a purpose. Last year, she distributed over 400 USDA produce boxes to area neighborhoods during the pandemic. She personally hand delivered half of those boxes to neighbors' front porches.
Coleman currently serves on four local nonprofit boards ranging from respite care to sustainability to music education to hunger/poverty. Most recently, she joined the Birmingham Rise Against Hunger Community Engagement Board.
For over a decade, Coleman has engaged and empowered the community to bring people together with a purpose. From running for local office in 2009, advocating for smoke-free and environmental protection laws with the Lung Association in 2010-2011, graduating grassroots & political leadership programs in 2014, to pitching a City Ambassador Program in 2016, she is a deep-rooted Birmingham advocate.
Passionate about the city she lives, Coleman’s mission is to foster enthusiasm, positive community spirit and to market the City's many attributes. In 2017-2018, Coleman committed to one year of voluntary intensive public service at Railroad Park, chaired the health & wellness initiative, Project Yummy, for the Junior League of Birmingham, AND graduated the WOW Ambassador Hospitality Program conducted by the CVB Tourism Department.
What better way to be the city’s best ambassador than to bring creative, unique food tours and picnic experiences at affordable prices to the Greater Birmingham region?!
Whether date nights, birthdays, brunches, proposals to bridal showers and baby sprinkles, MCFT Picnics creates picnic experiences that are Instagram photo op worthy. Awesome add-ons are available such as our food tours, catered food, games, Bluetooth speaker, and a customized letter board.
