The Great American Foodathon

Thank you to Geoffrey Zakarian, our Board member and Food Council Chair, and FOX5 for hosting The Great American Foodathon Presented by Citi, and also supported by Avocado Green Mattress, to benefit City Harvest and No Kid Hungry.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, The Great American Foodathon Presented by Citi brought together an incredible group of talented chefs, entertainers, and personalities who recognize the importance of help feeding children and families in need in New York City and across the country, especially right now, and raised more than $1 million to help feed children and families who are struggling to put meals on their tables all across the country. A special thank you to our Presenting Sponsor Citi for matching donations, dollar-for-dollar, up to $500,000.

We are grateful to producer Jaret Keller and the talented chefs, entertainers, and personalities who participated, giving their time and coming together while staying apart to create this memorable TV special. A huge, heartfelt thanks to our partner, No Kid Hungry, Presenting Sponsor, Citi, and to Avocado Green Mattress for their support, as well as to everyone who watched and donated. It is only thanks to your support that we will be able to continue to feed our city throughout this unprecedented crisis.

Thank You to Everyone Who Lent Their Time and Talent to This Special
