Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival (NYCWFF) has raised $9.5 million to date to help fight hunger! 100% of the net proceeds benefit the No Kid Hungry® campaign and Food Bank For New York City.
NYCWFF is a national, star-studded, four-day event showcasing the talents of the world’s most renowned wine and spirits producers, chefs, culinary personalities and America’s most beloved television chefs while fighting to end hunger.
Considered the largest food and wine festival in New York City with more than 100 events, NYCWFF is widely recognized for its 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. Join over 55,000 passionate gourmands and aficionados and you’ll sip, swirl and savor the world-class cuisine, wine and spirits served up by more than 500 of the industry’s finest.
Headed into its 9th year, NYCWFF began as a one-night event, SWEET, in the fall of 2007. In 2008, Festival Founder and Director, Lee Brian Schrager (Senior Vice President, Communications and Corporate Social Responsibility at Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits of America) launched the inaugural NYCWFF that has quickly grown to mirror its sister Festival, the Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival.
