Macaron Day NYC 2011

 

In celebration of Macaron Day, participating New York City locations are handing out complimentary samples of these tasty treats with a portion of their macaron sales going to benefit City Harvest (www.cityharvest.org).  As is the world's first food rescue organization, dedicated to feeding the city's hungry men, women, and children. This year, City-Harvest will collect 28 million pounds of excess food from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, and farms. This food is then delivered free of charge to nearly 600 community food programs throughout New York City using a fleet of trucks and bikes as well as volunteers on foot. Each week, City-Harvest helps over 300,000 hungry New Yorkers find their next meal.
