We’re Teaming Up With Food Bank for New York City to Support Restaurants

Here’s how you can get involved

Next week, in honor of Hunger Action Month, Food Bank For New York City is holding its restaurant campaign Eat for Good in partnership with Eater.

Food Bank and Eater last hosted this campaign in 2019; its premise was to get local restaurants and its patrons involved in the fight against hunger by donating a portion of the week’s profits to the organization’s mission. This year, the goal of the Eat for Good campaign, which runs from September 13 to September 19, is instead to drive business to restaurants, which have felt the consequences of the pandemic since day one.

If you’d like to get involved this year, visit any of the restaurants participating in the campaign or your favorite local restaurant, bar, or bodega; get the word out about these places and encourage your friends and followers to visit their favorites too. And if you’re free for dinner on September 17, Hunger Action Day, join Food Bank and Eater at Niche Niche for a four-course dinner with wine pairings (part of your $88 ticket will go directly to Food Bank).

Food Bank For New York City has been the city’s major hunger-relief organization working to end hunger throughout the five boroughs, providing meals in the neediest communities while raising awareness and engagement among all New Yorkers.

Disclosure: Eater’s editor-in-chief Amanda Kludt is on the culinary council at Food Bank.
