Nourishing NYC July 28, 2011 Gallery Event

On Thursday, July 28th, there will be gallery event and fundraiser hosted by Nourishing NYC at the William Bennett Gallery from 6-9pm at 65 Greene Street in Soho. This is a ticketless event that Nourishing NYC and William Bennett
Gallery would like to ask you to attend and enjoy. The evening will include
Wine and Sake Tastings, Art Viewing and a Silent Auction.

If you like you can bid on the fabulous auction items with all proceeds supporting The Junior Chef Program-a summer program for low-income in-need children that focuses on teaching culinary, nutrition and urban agriculture. The auction items range from a signed cookbook from Celebrity Chef Thomas Keller to a Jets football signed by the team.

Nourishing NYC was opened in 2008 to address poor nutrition and health while addressing the issue of food scarcity and hunger. Nourishing NYC is a not-for-profit 501 (c)(3) community food program that strives to achieve “nutrition for all” in New York City. Their mission is to alleviate the strong correlation between low-income status and poor dietary health.

At Nourishing NYC, they strive to achieve the mission of “Nutrition for All” through a three-pronged approach of feed, educate and advocate. They are known throughout the country for our balanced and delicious hot meal services, junior chefs’ classes and produce programs. They provide nutritious meals and
nutritional educational without question and without criticism. Anyone is
welcome regardless of age, sex, race, financial qualifications, or religious
beliefs.

The July 7, 2011 report from Reuters reported that the number of obese adults in the U.S. rose in 16 states. According to this report, the obesity rate is above 30 percent in a dozen states.  Americans are eating less nutritious food and
more of it, while exercising less. Childhood obesity rates have skyrocketed.
Nourishing NYC‘s the Plant to Plate Chefs is a culinary arts and agriculture
nutritional educational program for children ages 6-12.

One of It’s a Glam Thing’s favorite designers, Adriana MarieCo.,is sponsoring the event. Adriana MarieCo in keeping with their philosophy of giving back to the community, also donates $5 of all tees purchased to Nourishing NYC.  I am proud to be able to join her at this worthy event.
