Join us at BID

Thursday, October 19, 2017 | Metropolitan Pavilion

Thanks to everyone who joined us for this year’s BID! Nearly 1,000 guests enjoyed the evening’s many surprises, from the omakase station and flappers to the gaming tables and roaming truffle tater tot bar.

This year’s event has raised a record-breaking $1.5 million, which will help us rescue and deliver 6 million pounds of good, nutritious food for our fellow New Yorkers! We could not have reached this level of fundraising success without the support of our incredible guests and partners in the restaurant community.
