July 12, 2012
Just like the Statue of Liberty, Action Against Hunger got its beginnings in France. To this day, we're proud of our French heritage, and we're thrilled to partner with incredible French companies to put on events that honor our roots while raising money for our lifesaving work.
This week is French Restaurant Week, commemorating the storming of the Bastille in 1789. Participating French restaurants throughout New York City are offering a special promotional menu which costs only $17.89. Restaurants in Manhattan and Brooklyn are hosting pétanque tournaments to enjoy some Frenchy fun with this traditional game. Learn more on our event posting, and happy Quatorze Juillet!
Later on in the summer, we'll be at Le Taste of France's show and soirée. The show aims to celebrate French culture by sharing French food and products with New Yorkers. Le Taste of France is the first French online community across the United States, and this September, it will become the first global celebration of France. In New York, the exhibition will feature culinary delights, Francophone music, and a pétanque tournament. Learn more about the show and soirée on our event posting.
Lastly, we're proud to partner up with Clos du Bois winery throughout this summer. For every new "like" on the Clos du Bois Facebook page through September 30th, they'll be donating $1 to support our programs. Get your social media on for a cause, and stay up to date on wine news, food pairing, and other interesting tidbits from the winery!
