In 1986, Citymeals Founder Gael Greene and then-Board Member Joan Weill conceived the Power Lunch for Women — our biggest fundraising event of the year — as a spoof on the concept of the men's power breakfast.
Decades later, we're still bringing together friends — old and new — to join us in the fight to end elder hunger. Over the years, Power Lunch has raised more than $31 million in support of Citymeals' mission.
On November 15th, 2023, philanthropic New Yorkers across all industries will come together at The Plaza for the 36th Annual Power Lunch. This year’s honorees are Barbara Tober, Joe Holder and corporate partner Standard Industries. Tickets are available now.
