Hi all, I'd be grateful if you'd consider being part of this Slow Food NYC Special Event tomorrow night to raise funds to support our work with NYC schoolkids and gardens. Our original date was November 1 of last year but Hurricane Sandy changed our plans. Thanks in advance (and sorry for the limited meetup message formatting) - Holley

Party proceeds support the Slow Food NYC Urban Harvest program. The program logistically and financially supports a dozen schools located in the South Bronx, Harlem, the Lower East Side, and in East New York. We support and operate Urban Harvest Gardens in Brooklyn and South Africa.
Last year, the program reached over 1000 children in communities with limited access to fresh, healthful food – helping them learn about good food and their health, the health of their communities and the health of the planet.
