Hello Summer! Cookstr/Zokos Picnic Potluck

We're closing to RSVPs here but there are still spots left on the event page. Make sure you purchase a ticket to confirm your attendance!

____

Join food+tech meetuppers Cookstr and Zokos as we celebrate the coming of summer with a Picnic-themed Potluck to benefit City Harvest. For a $25 donation (feel free to contribute more!), you will be invited to partake in fantastic blogger-cooked dishes, as well as drink to your heart's content. No need to prepare a dish, but if you'd like to, feel free!

Everyone will be voting on the best picnic-themed dishes as we crowdsource the winners, who will receive sets of Anolon Nouvelle cookware as prizes. We'll also be raffling off exciting picnic sets from OXO! Be sure to pick up raffle tickets for $1 each at the event. Last but certainly not least, there will be a photobooth sponsored by Sir Kensington's.

All attendees are also invited to bring their own potluck dishes to share for an opportunity to win more prizes! And everyone will get a gift bag filled with goodies from Pretzel Crisps, Peanut Butter & Company, Fairytale Brownies, Plated.com, Kerrygold, Roland, Runa, Ola! Granola, Built NY and more!

Now serving New York City for more than 30 years, City Harvest is the world’s first food rescue organization, dedicated to feeding the city’s hungry men, women, and children. This year, City Harvest will collect more than 42 million pounds of excess food from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, and farms. This food is then delivered free of charge to some 600 community food programs throughout New York City by a fleet of trucks and bikes. City Harvest helps feed the more than one million New Yorkers that face hunger each year.

As part of our commitment to City Harvest, we are asking each attendee to bring a few unperishable food items to contribute to the City Harvest food drive Tipping Point Workspace will be holding. Additionally, as a part of their Skip Lunch Fight Hunger Campaign City Harvest will be sharing details about how a donation of just $50 can help feed 6 children for an entire month.
