Appetite for Activism? Breaking Bread NYC

Vote with your fork — you’ve got more executive power than you think! Breaking Bread NYC enables you to welcome the strange, explore the unknown, and use food as an agent of change.

Conceived by Scott Wiener, a food tour organizer and self proclaimed pizza expert, Breaking Bread NYC is a project aimed at those New Yorkers who live at the corner of foodie and righteous. Through pop-up events aimed at connecting communities through cuisine, he is bringing people together with shared food experiences that support immigrants and immigrant owned restaurants.

This week, in partnership with the Brooklyn Kitchen, an industrial-chic go-to for high-end kitchenware, they have a Sudanese Dinner with proceeds supporting The International Rescue Committee. Last month, New York University Department of Art and Public Policy hosted Breaking Bread NYC on a panel to discuss “Delicious Activism”. Each week or so it’s a different destination. And, for a $10 donation via their Facebook page, you will receive a Breaking Bread Food Map, with restaurants across the city that have been affected by the recent governmental travel restrictions. The underlying recipe? It’s always easier to understand the unfamiliar when you sit down and break bread together.
