The menu will include some ingredients from local purveyors – including microgreens from Edenworks, greens from Gotham Greens, shellfish from Sea to Table, produce from local farms from Local Roots NYC – and more!  A gift bag is included for all dinner guests, along with a raffle where some gifts will be given away for free to a random diner.  Includes 2 tickets to Demo Day at Food-X where you will network with food business founders, investors, and food experts and leaders.  This is a private-invite only event so value is priceless!  We’ll also be giving away a signed copy (well, pre-order for a signed copy) of Rachael Mamane’s upcoming book “Mastering Stocks and Broths”.

You have the choice of joining us for dinner only, or dinner and a reception beforehand.

In addition, you can also purchase a VIP ticket and be guaranteed a seat with an expert in the food space:

  • Andrew Ive, Managing Director, Food-X. Discuss food accelerators and entrepreneurship in the food space with the head of the most successful food accelerator in the world.
  • Diane Hatz, Founder & Executive Director, Change Food. Have questions about the food movement? Want to work for or learn more about social change in food? Dine with Diane to learn about opportunities in the nonprofit food space.
  • Viraj Puri, Founder & CEO, Gotham Greens. Learn about vertical farming and the growing influence of urban agriculture
  • Robert Graham, M.D., MPH, co-Founder & Doctor, FRESH Med NYC. Explore the connection between food and health with a doctor who grows, cooks and prescribes food as medicine and  learn more about FRESH Med, an innovative, integrative medicine practice in Brooklyn.

All proceeds benefit Change Food as the nonprofit strives to create a healthy food system for all. Change Food is currently raising funds for all Change Food Projects!

Join us on March 27! If you can’t come but would like to support Change Food, you can also leave a donation through Eventbrite or through the Change Food website. Thank you for your support!
