Why Food?

Sharing a meal, passing down recipes and cooking for family and friends - we all love food for its ability to keep traditions, celebrate heritage, and make us feel at home. Food is at the heart of every community. It's also something that too many of our neighbors have to worry about.

#EatWellGiveBack

Grand St. Settlement has been bringing New Yorkers together to build and support communities for 100 years - and our signature fundraising event is no different. You can help by making a donation or volunteering your time and talent.

JUMPstart CHANGE

We first opened our doors in 1916 on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, but today we have grown to serve more than 7,300 New Yorkers in neighborhoods on both sides of the Williamsburg Bridge. We give New Yorkers access to opportunities that inspire, services that keep families strong, and programs that bring communities closer.

Wheel of Good Fortune

Give this game a whirl for a chance to win big - for you and for the community!

Raffle

This year, we're doing it big. The grand winner goes home with half the pot and second- and third-place walk away with special prizes. Buy your tickets now - you don't have to be present to win!

Silent Auction

Make sure you get an afternoon playing world-famous links, taking in a Broadway show, crushing it at SoulCycle or enjoying a coveted table at Rao's.

Grand St. Settlement is so very lucky to have had the best kind of neighbors. Not only do our restaurants bring their most exciting and impressive dishes to TLES - they do it all from the bottom of their hearts. These chefs donate their time, talent and A teams to our event year after year. We can't thank them enough.
