Zokos City Harvest Potluck

This past weekend I participated in the Zokos City Harvest Potluck...

Zokos, a new online party planning site, teamed up with local food bloggers and beverage sponsors to throw a potluck benefit for New York's City Harvest...

City Harvest is an awesome organization here in NYC that's mission is to end hunger in communities throughout New York City. This year, City Harvest will collect more than 38 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. 

For a $20 donation guests enjoyed delicious treats from food bloggers...RendezfoodsJustcook NYC, My Big Fat MouthThe Gay Gourmet, Dorm Room Dinner , Chip Chip Hooray, The Feisty Foodie, and many others! Oh...and me...I made Dijon Tortellini!

The food offerings were washed down with liquid refreshments provided by Vinport, Brooklyn Brewery, and RedJacket Juice! 

There was even a vote for best dish, the winner receiving a set of Anolon Nouvelle Copper Skillets! 

Congratulations to....

Although I didn't take home the bragging rights, or the Anolon Cookware, I did get an awesome gift bag filled with goodies from Kerrygold Cheese, Sustainable Sourcing/HimalaSalt, Peanut Butter & Company, Roland Foods, Fairytale Brownies, Anolon Cookware, Red Jacket Juice, Tipping Point Partners, the GRACE Foundation, Built NY, and Earnest Eats...

Over 70 people were in attendance and we collectively raised more than a $1,000 dollars for City Harvest! It was an evening filled with great food and great people for a great cause...Thanks to Zokos and their sponsors for all of the fun! It was a pleasure cooking for you all!
