IntoxiKate’s Eating for Orange

Let’s go orange! IntoxiKate Kate Schlientz joins Food Bank for Westchester to go orange for Hunger Action Month in an effort to educate the local community on the 200,000 neighbors who are hungry or food insecure. Starting this month, over 20 restaurants from across Westchester county will participate in “IntoxiKate’s Eating for Orange,” a month-long event created to help spread awareness on the issue in our community, as well as Food Bank for Westchester’s news and events.

“When you work with Food Bank for Westchester, you experience a range of emotions,” said Schlientz. “While the statistics about hunger insecurity in our community are troubling, the enthusiasm and innovation of the entire team is contagious. You want to help. When they asked if I would consider working as a social media ambassador, I agreed, but offered to to do more.”

IntoxiKate worked with the food bank to create the month-long event, inviting restaurants from Yonkers to Chappaqua to Port Chester to be involved. A range of dishes range can be enjoyed—from seasonal celebrations, to gluten-free and vegetarian options, in both sweet and savory categories.

To collaborate, each restaurant was asked to create a new dish or highlight an existing menu item that was orange-colored or flavored. These dishes will be highlighted on the restaurant’s social media platforms, IntoxiKate’s social media outlets, and on IntoxiKate.com. This month, restaurant staff will also don orange bracelets and provide literature provided by Food Bank for Westchester.
