Some of our favorite signs of summer here at Food Bank are warm sunny days, fresh seasonal produce at our Bronx warehouse, and, of course, Toast & Jam! This year’s annual donor appreciation reception—graciously hosted, once again, at The James Beard House on Wednesday, June 13—featured cuisine from three-time James Beard Award-winning chef Andrew Carmellini.
This year’s Toast & Jam felt extra special—not just because of the amazing food or the celebration of Food Bank’s 35th Anniversary but because we were able to share them both with our good friends and dedicated mission partners.
Special thanks to Toast & Jam chefs and sponsors who helped to make the night possible: Chef Andrew Carmellini, Chef Tyler Atwall of Lafayette Grand Café & Bakery, Locanda Verde, Ruffino, Shiner Bock, Leuca NYC and The James Beard Foundation.
We appreciate all our supporters do to make a difference for New Yorkers in need and invite you to join us in the fight against hunger.
