The New York City Coalition Against Hunger (NYCCAH) represents the more than 1,200 nonprofit soup kitchens and food pantries in New York City and the more than 1.3 million low-income New Yorkers who are forced to use them. The Coalition works to meet the immediate food needs of low-income New Yorkers and enact innovative solutions to help them move “beyond the soup kitchen” to self-sufficiency.

    I just wanted to pass on the details for an important fundraiser. I thought some folks on this blog would be interested!

    Food for Thought: Hunger in NYC

    In one of the wealthiest cities in world, many residents still choose between food and other basic necessities. Though there is a lot to eat in NYC, access to this precious resource is more tenuous than most New Yorkers realize.

    Please join the Manhattan Young Democrats on Tuesday, May 11th at 7:30pm for a dinner highlighting issues of food insecurity in NYC. Will you get a lot to eat or a little? Come find out!

    All proceeds will benefit New Alternatives for Homeless LGBT Youth and City Harvest.

    Let the facts surprise you as we listen to an expert on hunger discus the disproportionate affects of food insecurity on NYC’s residents.

    The event is located at Middle Collegiate Church located at 7th street between 1st and 2nd. Tickets are $25. Please purchase your ticket by May 2, 2010 at

    My name is Meagan Brown and I work in the publicity department for Free Press, an imprint of Simon and Schuster. I’ve been looking through your blog and I think you would really enjoy one of our new books, Empires of Food.

    Please email me if you are interested in looking into this book further, it would make for good discussion on your blog.
