November is here, with the promise of Thanksgiving and the winter holidays not too far away. For many of us, the holiday season reminds us of great memories of family, friends and yes, great food.
But for the nearly 1.3 million New Yorkers who rely on emergency food services to feed their family, it’s this time of year that can be the most difficult, offering them a stark reminder about what they are missing.
Robin Hood is known for their events, and this event will be no different. It’ll be an amazing crowd with celebrities and people from every conceivable industry, great music, lots of drinks, and an inspiring message. Price of admission: The purchase of at least one $50 holiday meal through Fresh Direct, with a VIP ticket available to anyone purchasing at least 10 holiday meal boxes ($500 donation).
Even if you can’t attend, I hope you’ll still consider helping those less fortunate this holiday season by going directly to Fresh Direct and donating at least $50 Just visit foodforgood.eventbrite.com to purchase your meal and donate to the cause.
Just be sure to list my name when prompted in your purchase, so I can keep track of who’s attending the event and ensure that you are on the list, and so I can see how many New Yorkers my friends can help feed this holiday season.
We hope to see you on November 12th!
