The Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by Coca-Cola has raised over $9.5 million dollars to help fight hunger. And, there is still time to get more tickets today!
100% of the net proceeds benefit the No Kid Hungry® campaign and Food Bank For New York City to end childhood hunger in America and the five boroughs of New York City. Every year, NYCWFF raises over $1 million for these charities helping them better provide for those they serve and closing the gap on hunger in our country.
