1.4 million New Yorkers are hungry.
Join our seventh annual Fast-A-Thon (#FastAThon) to increase awareness about hunger and raise much-needed funds this Thanksgiving. For every dollar raised, we will be able to serve a delicious, hot meal to a New Yorker in need. Our goal is to raise $80,000, which will go a long way in helping us keep our soup kitchen shelves stocked these next few months when our nutritious lunches and the respite we provide from the winter weather are so important.
Here’s how you can participate:
- Pledge to eat one meal on November 15th, like so many soup kitchen guests do each day.
- Set a fundraising goal.
- Send a personal note to family, friends and colleagues telling them why this is important to you, and invite them to show their support.
As a show of appreciation, we will present the highest individual fundraiser with two tickets to our May Farm-to-Tray tasting event, hosted by some of New York City’s most talented chefs. The corporation that raises the most funds will receive a free Day of Service with our Good Corporate Citizen Program, for a team of 15. Fast-A-Thon (#FastAThon) is a registered Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week Event event, and a great way to take part in this national movement.
