Our festive holiday tasting event celebrates the best and most creative potato pancakes in New York City. The 9th Annual Latke Festival is at the Brooklyn Museum for the second year! Join us and our panel of celebrity judges on December 18th to ring in the holidays, enjoy amazing food and drink and vote for the Best Latke in NYC!
Net proceeds benefit The Sylvia Center, a nonprofit dedicated to teaching healthy eating habits to children and their families, with programs in New York City and at Katchkie Farm in Kinderhook, NY.
The Latke Festival benefits The Sylvia Center, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that addresses the growing epidemic of childhood obesity and diet-related diseases by inspiring children, teens and families to eat well through hands-on experiences on the farm and in the kitchen. All net proceeds will help fund the New York City programs that teach young people from NYCHA Community Housing Centers basic cooking skills and the principles of healthy eating. Led by trained chef instructors, classes have a student-to-teacher ration of 4:1 and immerse students in experiences with fresh, whole foods. This year our goal is to sponsor over 1500 students to the NYC program.
