More than just my (hopefully) humorous rants about life in the food and customer service industries, I hope to use this blog to promote special events, people or organizations that enrich our community. When I moved to New York in 2009, I started volunteering at special events as a way to meet new people, learn about the city and network. The first such event was the Food Network New York City Wine and Food Festival and I am thrilled to be volunteering again this year, this time helping coordinate set-up for the Grand Tasting. For more information about everything they have to offer, a true foodie's dream weekend, check out their website below:
Part of what makes this event so special is the exposure, donations and funding that are channeled to the Food Bank of New York City. I have volunteered for two of their events (the Wine and Food Festival and the NYC Marathon) and can honestly say that everyone who works for this organization is a winner. They genuinely appreciate everyone who comes out to support their fundraising efforts. So, please take a look at their website and think about whether or not you might like to support them.
If you are a reader of this blog and would like to share any experiences you have had participating in this event or volunteering for the Food Bank, let us know in the comment section.
