Some of you may have heard that Queens is getting its own Food Co-Op next year, which is pretty exciting and a great way to gain access to quality, fresh food at a competitive price. The organization is a member-owned member-controlled business and they're in the midst of raising funds for the co-op, which will in turn benefit all its members (which can be you!) Here's where Queens Eats comes in.
A fund-raiser event showcasing the best of the best of Queens, including tastings from popular restaurants and bakeries, raffles, a silent auction, music performances and more, the evening promises to unite some of the most important influencers in our borough.
