BID 2020: The Show Must Go On

For nearly 20 years, City Harvest’s annual fall tasting event, Bid Against Hunger, has brought together New York City’s best chefs, restaurants, mixologists, and loyal supporters for an evening of incredible food and entertainment, raising enough to help feed over 17 million New York families. We’ve spent many wonderful nights together, immersed in festive themes, from Big Band and Havana Nights to Studio 54.

On Tuesday, October 20, City Harvest held its first-ever, at-home dining experience, offering guests the opportunity to bring BID’s magic to their homes with a fun and delicious evening of Michelin-Star cuisine from Cote Korean Steakhouse, beverages, and spectacular entertainment. Hosted by Chef Geoffrey Zakarian, City Harvest Board Member and Chair of our Food Council, the show featured City Harvest’s celebrated friends and pre-recorded live entertainment by On The Move.

Thanks to the generosity of our guests, partners, and sponsors, we raised to enough to help feed more than 1.6 million New York City families who are turning to us at this profoundly challenging and uncertain time.
