"Hands down...this is the best day I can ever remember..."

As many of you might already know, the team here at Finance Foodie has always been a big supporter community involvement.  As a locally-based "all things cool and yummy" site, one of our main missions is to continually bridge the gap between the culinary world and charity world in order to bring them together for exciting events that help develop and strengthen the society in where we live, play, eat, and work.

Therefore, we got really excited and jumped at the chance to support Housing Works, a New York based non profit that is committed to ending AIDS and homelessness, for their A Taste of Home party. We encourage all of FF readers to attend this awesome event (if anything just to party with the super nice and gorgeous Gail Simmons)!
