The Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by Coca-Cola (NYCWFF) has raised $10.5 million to date to help fight hunger! 100% of the net proceeds benefit Food Bank For New York City and the No Kid Hungry® campaign.

This year’s Festival will take place Thursday, October 12 – Sunday, October 15. With more than 80 events, NYCWFF pays homage to one of the greatest dining cities in the world through tastings in celebration of America’s favorite foods, intimate dinners with world-renowned chefs, late night parties, hands-on classes, educational seminars, coveted wine tastings and more. 

There’s still time to sign up as a NYCWFF volunteer during this year’s Festival! It will take more than 2,500 volunteers to make NYCWFF a success and we need your help. As a volunteer, you are given the opportunity to work alongside event management professionals, distinguished logistics providers, and food industry leaders. Not only will you be a huge part of putting together New York City’s biggest and best wine and food festival, you’ll also be joining us in the fight to end hunger! Sign up today.
