I’m proud to announce that on May 16th I am producing From Farm to Tray - a sustainable food celebration to benefit Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen - the largest emergency feeding program in New York City serving 1,200 meals every single weekday to hungry and homeless New Yorkers.
The concept of From Farm to Tray is a celebration of food at the soup kitchen, challenging high profile NYC chefs to produce a ‘100 Mile Menu,’ where ingredients for each meal are sourced within a 100-mile radius. The idea for the fundraiser is firmly rooted in the approach to food that shapes the soup kitchen’s menu each week: the use of fresh locally grown produce, a commitment to nutritional balance and the importance of providing a variety of taste and texture.
This event is especially important to me because it is a culmination of my experience working with NYC charities and my passion for the culinary arts. It will be a fun cocktail reception with incredible chefs working together to help raise funds for an extraordinary cause.
