My favorite New York chefs take on the “Sustainable Menu” challenge to fight hunger with Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen

Dear Foodies & Friends,

I’m thrilled to announce that on Thursday, May 15th I am producing From Farm to Tray, a sustainable food benefit for Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen, New York’s largest emergency feeding program, serving over 1,000 meals every weekday to hungry New Yorkers. 

From Farm to Tray is a celebration of food at the soup kitchen, challenging prestigious New York City chefs to produce a ‘Sustainable Menu.’ 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.           

From Farm to Tray chefs represent some of New York’s most distinguished restaurants, including One if by Land, Two if by Sea, Bodega Negra at Dream Downtown, Freemans, Thalassa, Left Bank, Zio Ristorante, ISA, and Shula’s Steak House. Our chefs will create a tasting menu with local ingredients sponsored by Whole Foods.


Like the soup kitchen guests who eat there every weekday, guests at From Farm to Tray will dine in the beautiful sanctuary of the landmark Holy Apostles Church, a space that New York Times journalist Anna Quindlen named “the most majestic dining room in New York City.”

Last year this event attracted over 300 guests and raised more than $150,000 in cash and in-kind donations. Recently, the soup kitchen and this event were featured in the Huff Post and will be featured in the Wall Street Journal later this month.

From Farm to Tray: A Sustainable Food Celebration to Benefit Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen

 

Hello Friends and Foodies!Join me and some of my favorite chefs on Thursday, May 15th as they create a Sustainable Menu at From Farm to Tray to benefit Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen - NYC’s largest emergency feeding program, serving over 1,000 hungry New Yorkers every weekday.             

From Farm to Tray is a celebration of food at the soup kitchen, challenging both homegrown New York City chefs and high profile culinary names from across the city to produce a Sustainable Menu. Our generous partnership with Whole Foods will assist our featured chefs in sourcing local seasonal ingredients for the event.

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. 

Like the soup kitchen guests who eat here every weekday, guests at From Farm to Tray will dine in the beautiful sanctuary of the landmark Holy Apostles Church, a space that New York Times journalist Anna Quindlen named “the most majestic dining room in New York City.” And like the food served here every weekday, the Sustainable Menu will ensure meals are locally grown, in season, and perhaps most importantly of all, delicious. 

Last year, we attracted over 300 guests to the first-time event, raising over $150,000 in cash and in-kind donations and introducing 22 new partnerships to the Soup Kitchen. This event raised enough money to feed the soup kitchen guests for over two months!
