Community Giving

Community Giving

BR GUEST believes deeply in the importance of giving back. For those whom we are lucky enough to feed in our restaurants, pangs of hunger signal a great meal to come. But there are many others less fortunate, who cannot afford to feed themselves. We have teamed up with the organizations below to not only supply food to people in our community, but improve the overall quality of life for them in areas such as education and professional training.

We hope you’ll join us in supporting these incredible organizations:

Citymeals

Citymeals-on-Wheels

Citymeals-on-Wheels provides a continuous lifeline of nutritious food and human company to homebound elderly New Yorkers in need.

Gods Love

God's Love We Deliver

God's Love We Deliver aims to improve the health and well-being of men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other serious illnesses by alleviating hunger and malnutrition.

City Harvest

The organization now delivers an average of nearly 77,000 pounds of food daily and 28 million pounds this year.

Publicolor

Publicolor

Publicolor combats the under-education and lack of job preparedness that fuel poverty by empowering students to reach their full potential in college and career. Publicolor engages high-risk students, ages 12-21, in their education through a continuum of design-based programs and academic support that counter the dropout rate.

James Beard Foundation

James Beard Foundation

The James Beard Foundation aims to celebrate, nurture, and preserve America’s diverse culinary heritage and future. Food matters - not only because food is nutrition, but also because food is an integral part of our everyday lives.

The James Beard Foundation is at the center of Americas culinary community, dedicated to exploring the way food enriches our lives.
