A NYC Evening for NYC Children

June 3, 2015 by

On Monday, May 11, Ample Table for Everyone (ATE) hosted our inaugural donor recognition event at the Maxwell Davidson Gallery in New York City. More than 150 ATE supporters and friends turned up to nibble on local, seasonal, sustainable fare prepared by Chef Russ Moss while enjoying dazzling wraparound views of the Manhattan skyline.

Guests heard from ATE’s 2014 grantees, PS 84 PTA principal, Robin Sundick, on the school’s urban agriculture and nutrition education initiatives, led by garden educator, Sharon Kimmelman in partnership with Wellness in Schools (WITS); and Corbin Hill Food Project founder and president, Dennis Derryck on the organization’s technological advancements to its CSA platform—both made possible by ATE grants.

Among our guests was ‘cheftavist’ Bill Telepan who actively campaigns for food justice and healthy school meals.

Thank you to everyone who attended, and to those who’ve supported our mission to fight food insecurity in New York City. Together, let’s ensure every child across the five boroughs can say, “I ate!”
