Plates for Change

Third Annual Chef Showcase

Will Help Fight Hunger

Social justice and the plight of the poor have been front and center this week. Many people, Catholics and non-Catholics alike, have been inspired by the Pope’s words. Are you looking for an opportunity to share what you have with those who have much less? Take a look at Neighbors Together, an organization committed to ending hunger and poverty in Ocean Hill, Brownsville and Bedford-Stuyvesant, three of the lowest-income areas in New York City.

The organization has served more than 80,177 deliberately delicious and nutritious meals just this year at its Community Café, only one of its ongoing philanthropic ventures.

While donations are always needed and greatly appreciated, those who can attend might not want to miss the group’s third annual fall chef showcase Plates for Change on Wednesday, October 14 from 6:30 to 9:30 PM at The Green Building in Brooklyn. Learn more about the participating restaurants and businesses here. We thank them all for their generous donations of time, talent and food.

A very special virtual round of applause for everyone pitching in to make this major fundraiser possible, including its sponsors: Capuchin Franciscans (Province of St. Mary), The Atlantic Philanthropies (Designated Gift Fund) and Thompson Hine.
