Eat nYc The Bronx Food And Wine Festival returns to New York City and is one event not to be missed! Representing a collaboration with Aval & Co to benefit a great cause — the Food Bank For New York City. Because in a city as great as NYC, its motto “No One Should Go Hungry!” is one we should all be eager to support. Simply walking down the street, one cannot help but notice the economic disparities between the affluent and poor. And there’s really no reason for it to exist. In a country as great as the United States, hunger should exist no more. So grab a ticket and join forces with a great organization as we strive to end hunger.
From the official press release:
“The Bronx is home to Hip Hop, Fashion, Food, and culture but it is also home to the largest number of “Food Insecure Homes” than any other borough in our city. So This year Eat nYc will UNITE all of those facets of our borough to take a stand against hunger here in our commUNITY! This is our hometown and HUNGER is not welcomed!
We welcome you to join us as we team up with Aval & Co Fashion House to help us in our efforts to combat hunger right here in our own hometown.
