The fourth annual Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by Food & Wine takes place September 29 – October 2, 2011. All of the net proceeds of the Festival are going to benefit charity. The Festival is hosted by and benefits the Food Bank For New York City, fighting hunger in the five boroughs; and Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit working to end childhood hunger in America.
The Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival is the only festival in New York to bring together both legendary culinary icons from around the globe and America’s most beloved television chefs. Mirroring the charitable component of the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival, the New York City festival benefits the hunger relief programs Food Bank for New York City and Share Our Strength.
