Turn your next dinner party into a fundraiser to fight world hunger.
Considering the number of times we eat every day—and how important food is to us—we jumped at the opportunity to collaborate with FEED on their latest project: FEED Supper. With the goal of raising 2 million meals in 1 month, this initiative encourages people to host fundraising dinner parties—where each guest makes a donation to provide meals to those who don't have access to the bounty of food that many of us do.
For our own FEED dinner party, we invited their founder, Lauren Bush Lauren, to the Food52 office for a meal of recipes from our latest Dinner Brigade Field Guide, with FEED's decorations and placemats that speak to the dinner's purpose.
Ready to host your own? Each FEED for Food52 Dinner Brigade Box, available in our Shop, includes supplies for hosting a party of six, with a pennant banner, placemats, name cards with conversation starters on the back, and six copies—one for each guest—of the fall edition of our Burnt Toast Dinner Brigade Field Guide (which contains 10 of our favorite seasonal recipes, plus tips for pulling it all off without stress).
Each placemat includes a place to write the number of meals donated during the meal (FEED's goal is to raise two million meals by October 16th!). But our favorite part may be the "Thank You" cards that have a seed packet from Hudson Valley Seed Library tucked inside—to thank each guest for their donation with a gift that keeps on feeding.
And if hosting a dinner party in the next month isn't in the cards for you, don't worry: We've collaborated with FEED to create an exclusive, reversible indigo bag, proceeds from which will feed one student for an entire year.
