A radical idea in the mission to erase hunger in NYC

Fare Share Friday is a way for all those associated with Crossroads Community, soup kitchen guests, pantry shoppers, shelter guests, food rescue volunteers, financial supporters, cooks and staff, to sit side-by-side and share with the broader community an extraordinary dinner.

In doing so, we can start to help end hunger in our community— making life better for all.

Tickets are available at 4 PM & 7 PM on Friday, November 24, 2017. Nearly half of the reservations are given to Crossroads Community guests with the remainder purchased at $125 per seat. 

Proceeds go to strengthen our food, shelter and food rescue programs, and to advance our mission to end hunger and homelessness.

Chefs from prestigious New York City landmark hotels combine their culinary talents to prepare the dinner. In addition, enthusiastic support from hundreds of individuals, local businesses, vendors, professional organizations and student groups, volunteer each year to make this event possible.

For information about how you can volunteer, please email faresharefriday@crossroadsnyc.org with "Volunteer" in the subject line. Someone will get back to you with more information about how you can get involved.
