If there’s one thing I enjoy doing, it’s eating for a good cause. I enjoy eating regardless, but isn’t it nice to know that while I’m gorging like a rabid dog on bone marrow and toast points, that someone aside from me is benefiting from it? I think so…
On September 26th, Harvest Home along with The Marcus Samuelsson Group will be hosting Savor The Season Uptown, a dine-around tasting event to benefit Harvest Home’s invaluable work bringing farm-fresh food, which includes a network of farmers markets and other healthy food and lifestyle programs to underserved communities.
Last year’s event was a great success, and included tastes and drinks from Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, Jim Ramen, Le Monde, Levain Harlem, Tonnie’s Mills, Melba’s 5 and Diamond, Mobay Catering, Creole and Samuelsson’s own Red Rooster. This year the organization is looking to build on their success by hosting a much larger event at the Museum of the City of New York. Those attending can count on enjoying a unique gastronomic experience with such upscale restaurants as Red Rooster, Corner Social, Levain Bakery and 5 and Diamond among many others. Chefs Marcus Samuelsson and Nils Noren from the Marcus Samuelsson Group will be curating the menu to ensure a delightful selection of seasonal dishes utilizing local produce. And don’t worry, of course there will be specialty cocktails – what better way to get people to donate money than to give them potent booze? There will also be a VIP meet and greet, a raffle, and live music.
Proceeds from this important fundraiser go to support and expand Harvest Home priority programs and services, such as Eating for Good Health Initiative and Play Streets. More event details are below. Please join us!
