WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. — Eat well for a cause.
Such is the message behind a local food writer's efforts to help raise awareness about food insecurity in Westchester.
IntoxiKate's Kate Schlientz has joined forces with Food Bank for Westchester to "Go Orange" for Hunger Action Month.
As of Friday, Sept. 1, 20-plus restaurants from across the county will participate in “IntoxiKate’s Eating for Orange,” a month-long event created to help spread awareness on the issues in our community, as well as Food Bank for Westchester’s news and events.
Diners are asked to visit participating restaurants, enjoy the orange-themed dishes, and help spread awareness by sharing their experience on social media using the following hashtags: #eatingfororange #intoxikate #hungeractionmonth #fbfw.
Restaurant staff will also don orange bracelets and provide literature provided by Food Bank for Westchester.
Among the options: Carrot Gastrique at Crabtree Kittle House in Chappaqua, Chocolate-Dipped Orange Peel at Mamaroneck's Chocolations and a Melon and Prosciutto Salad with Heirloom Tomatoes, Mint, and Olive Oil at Boro 6 Wine Bar in Hastings. Go HERE for a full list.
