From the Food Bank for NYC's website:
"There are more than three million New Yorkers who have difficulty affording food-- an astounding number and one that continues to increase as the donated food supply drops to an all-time low and energy and fuel costs skyrocket. To address this issue, the Food Bank procures and distributes food to a network of more than 1,000 food assistance programs citywide. In addition, we provide food safety and capacity-building workshops; manage school nutrition education programs, after-school and emergency food programs; conduct food stamp prescreening and outreach; operate a senior food program, soup kitchen and food pantry; coordinate the largest Free Tax Assistance Program in the country; and develop policy and conduct research to inform community and government efforts to end food poverty throughout New York City."
We raised $1300 for the Food Bank for NYC and Breck of Sesame Letterpress generously added a donation of $100 from the sales of her beautiful coasters. Finally and incredibly, the Robin Hood Foundation will TRIPLE our donation which means together we've donated $4200 to the Food Bank of NYC. Wow. I'm getting a little choked up. This is the best post I've ever done.
So without further adieu...(ok and this is really an embarrassing video and I promise it will be the last time you see any more of me on screen unless absolutely necessary, but we wanted to give you the full effect.) The winner is.....
Congratulations and thank you again for all of your generosity~can't wait to see what we come up with next year.
