New York City Wine & Food Festival Gives Back

Updated: 13 September 2017

This year, Culture Trip is excited to announce our partnership with the Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by Coca-Cola (NYCWFF).  Join us at this special event, which blends cuisine for the culturally curious with award-winning chefs, TV personalities, and other industry luminaries.

If you caught our last article about NYCWFF, you’ll know that the festival gives attendees a front-stage pass to the best spirits and food tastings — 500 different vendors to be exact.

“New York City is the center of the world, for me, for food. That’s why NYCWFF is so successful, because when you buy a ticket you really see the best of the best. You see everybody!” —Geoffrey Zakarian

But in addition to the culinary offerings, intimate dinners, cooking lessons, rooftop concerts and basically everything one could want in a food and wine festival, the NYCWFF also has a philanthropic side.

“In the past year alone, Food Bank For New York City has distributed nearly 80 million pounds of food. The funds raised from NYCWFF will help us provide nutritious food and critical services to 1.5 million New Yorkers struggling to feed themselves and their families.” —Margarette Purvis, President and CEO of Food Bank For New York City

That’s certainly a cause Culture Trip can get behind. We know that there are people in our own communities who struggle to feed themselves. So while October’s NYCWFF will be about enjoying some of the best food and drink in the world, you can do so knowing that you’ll also be helping to combat food poverty.
