3rd Annual Craig Murphey Fellowship Fundraiser Raises Thousands, Attracts Hundreds

October 20, 2009
Attendees judge 13 different hummuses in Hummus Cook-Off

Attendees judged 13 different types of hummus in our first ever Hummus Cook-Off on Saturday night.

This past Saturday, the New York City Coalition Against Hunger joined with friends and family to commemorate the life of Craig Murphey, a strongly committed anti-hunger community organizer who, while working with NYCCAH and the West Harlem Action Network Against Poverty, died in a tragic bike accident in 2007. The event was held at the Hope Lounge in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and attracted more than 250 people. Through the generosity of Hope Lounge and local businesses who donated raffle items, the event raised just over $5,000, which will help fund the Craig Murphey Fellowship, a program focused on anti-hunger, community-based work aimed at continuing Craig’s legacy.

If you were unable to make it, but would like to help us support this year’s Craig Murphey fellow, please donate in memory of Craig Murphey.
