About the New York City Wine & Food Festival
The New York City Wine & Food Festival aims to pay homage to New York City as one of the leading dining cities in the world, while fighting to end hunger. Founded in 2007, the event has raised $8.5 million to help fight hunger, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Food Bank for New York and the No Kid Hungry Campaign.
The Food Bank of New York has served as NYC's major hunger-relief organization working to end hunger for over 30 years, and nearly 1 in 5 New Yorkers relies on the organization for food and other resources. Launched by Share Our Strength in 2006, the No Kid Hungry Campaign connects children in need to nutritious foods and teaches their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals, while also engaging the public to make ending child hunger a national priority. CGNY was proud to be a part of this event and support these amazing charities.
