Join us Monday evening July 23rd, 2018
for City Flavors at the High Line 

About the fundraiser

On July 23rd, distinguished New York City culinary professionals will team up with food entrepreneurs from all five boroughs for a unique local tasting.

The entrepreneurs are graduates of Food Business Pathways, a program to train and formalize the skills of home chefs living in NYCHA Housing. The event will be a showcase for the food businesses and a fundraiser to provide grants to support these burgeoning entrepreneurs!

When: Monday July 23rd, 2018
Where: The High Line
Time: 6:30-9:00pm (VIP Entry 5:30)


The entrepreneurs will be assisted and mentored by notable NYC chefs, successful food business owners, and culinary students from the Natural Gourmet Institute.

Attendees will enjoy a menu of hometown favorites that reflect the diversity of New York palates; and, in keeping with the celebration of locally made products, the evening will feature New York State brews, wines and nonalcoholic delights.

Thanks to our partners
