The Brooklyn Local: City Harvest Benefit

City Harvest is an incredibly important food rescue organization that collects a lot of it's food from restaurants, taking food that would have been wasted, but with the help of City Harvest this food is used to help feed 300,000 people each week. 

In September City Harvest is throwing a benefit called The Brooklyn Local (all the details are listed below) a day long orgy of food shopping and eating that is not to be missed.  By your tickets before labor Day and save!
