Thirty-five years later, we're still bringing together friends — old and new — to raise awareness and funds for the fight to end elder hunger.

Join us once again, on November 17 at The Plaza, for Citymeals' Annual Power Lunch. Emceed by Stephanie Ruhle (Host of the 11th Hour with Stephanie Ruhle; NBC News Senior Business Analyst), this year's event honors longtime supporters Barbara Bush and Jenna Bush Hager and dedicated corporate partner Bloomberg LP. Tickets will be available in mid-September.

Last year's event was attended by over 200 leaders from the worlds of business, media, politics, philanthropy and entertainment and raised nearly $1.3 million to prepare and deliver meals to older New Yorkers in need. Read the press release and check out photos and press coverage.
