Putting Down Roots
David Chang co-chaired Edible Schoolyard NYC’s spring benefit
What: Edible Schoolyard NYC’s second annual spring benefit, where the city’s top chefs cooked to raise money for the nonprofit organization, founded by Alice Waters, which helps public schools build organic gardens and encourage healthy eating.
Where: 23 Wall Street in New York City’s Financial District
When: Monday, April 7th
Who: Momofuku’s David Chang was the evening’s culinary co-chair, bringing together chefs such as Michael Anthony, April Bloomfield, Tom Colicchio, and Danny Bowien. Martha Stewart, Oliver Platt, and W’s Editor in Chief Stefano Tonchi joined in the celebration.
Why: While Questlove, who provided the evening’s soundtrack, thanked David Chang for reintroducing him to tomatoes, beets, spinach and all “the foods that I swore I would never eat again,” the evening was really about the children. “Our food system is broken,” said Kate Brashares, the executive director of Edible Schoolyard, “We use the garden and kitchen as a classroom where students can learn about their own health, their families’ health, and their communities.” The night’s dinner and auction, which raised over $1 million, will help the organization achieve their goal. And, yes, encourage everyone to eat their vegetables.Follow Us:
