You may open up your Instagram feed and see miles of indulgent food pics labeled with clever eating and drinking hashtags. I know I do. And I know I contribute to that feed too.
While it’s all in good fun, it’s whimsical, it’s delicious, it’s aspirational…it can also be thought of as ridiculous and unnecessary. Well, suffice it to say that I love exploring new restaurants, trying new foods and documenting my experiences, so it’s not going to stop. BUT! I would like to start giving back.
This month, all Instagram likes on my account are worth at .05 cents to the Food Bank for New York City. Starting today through August 3rd. Let’s see how much we can donate together to this organization that supports the community we live in.
Here is the Food Bank website to learn about more ways to help!
20 likes this month = $1 = 5 meals

PS – we raised $145… that's 725 meals!
