2nd Annual Time Out for Hunger

March 20, 2005

New Yorkers will have the chance to raise money for hunger relief while dining at some of the city's top restaurants on Sunday, March 20 during the second annual Time Out For Hunger. The initiative was created in 2004 by Time Out New York and the Food Bank For New York City.Star Chef Mario Batali will lead more than 75 restaurants in donating 10% of March 20 proceeds to the Food Bank to feed families in need. For every dollar donated, the Food Bank is able to provide five meals to help feed the hungry in NYC.

Patrons who dine at one of the Time Out For Hunger restaurants on March 20 will receive a free three-month membership to TONY's Eating & Drinking Online. Diners will also have the opportunity to win dinner for two at one of the participating restaurants or a one-year subscription to Eating & Drinking Online.

An estimated two million people in New York City are at risk of going hungry. More than half of them are children and the elderly. The Food Bank For New York City, the nation's largest food bank and the city's largest supplier of food for the hungry, provides food for the more than 240,000 free meals served each day by 1,200 non-profit community food programs in the five boroughs.
