"The Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival is an embodiment of all those things The Daily Meal considers central in the ever-expanding food and drink community, creating an unrivaled dialogue between industry aficionados and everyday food enthusiasts,” said Colman Andrews, editorial director of The Daily Meal. Considering the past months’ record-breaking growth, this partnership helps underpin The Daily Meal as a leading voice in the culinary domain.”
Now in its fifth year, the Food Network New York City Festival benefits the hunger-relief programs of Food Bank for New York City and Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign. One hundred percent of the net proceeds from the Festival go directly to these community-based organizations. The Daily Meal is honored to align with such a powerful cause and those culinary thought leaders who will spend their time educating palates and entertaining guests for its betterment.
