Meat Week NYC events to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts!

Last year, Food Karma Projects created Meat Week NYC to support small livestock farmers upstate after Hurricane Irene tore through the region. Now post-Hurricane Sandy, we’re turning our focus to those in desperate need in the Rockaways.

Harry Rosenblum of The Brooklyn Kitchen/Meat Hook and other summer Rockaway Beach concession operators (Roberta’s, Rockaway Taco) are desperately raising urgent funds now for people in the Rockaways who have lost everything. Our meat will be purchased from Adirondack Grazers, a small co-op of grass fed beef farmers.

Among upcoming events, we’re committing all the ticket proceeds from our Modern Beefsteak & Spirits Celebration (Thursday, November 8th) to their efforts.

Please support the meat farmer and NYC establishments that have been struggling in the devastation from Hurricane Sandy. Great attendance at these events will help get local businesses back on their feet!

It’s time for carnivores to come together and celebrate sustainable meat! From November 3rd-11th 2012 NYC will celebrate all things beefy (and porky, lamby… oh, you get the idea). Celebrate local chefs, butchers and regional farmers by joining us for:

One of the key events of Meat Week NYC will be working with Adirondack Grazers Cooperative, a co-op of grass-fed beef farmers in Washington County, which will be bringing meat to several of the events including Modern Beefsteak & Spirits.
