This past summer, on August 6th 2016, I helped my brother Carter throw his annual Feed The Hood cookout at Riverbank State Park in Harlem, NYC.
Every year Carter buys a ton of food and provides free food to anyone who is in which ever park he has the cookout. This past one, we took it a step further and included bookbags with school supplies for kids and free t-shirts for guests, along with various food selections and tasty treats.
Despite the weather (a whole 5 minutes of rain) we were prepared with a huge tent for guests to stand under while the short shower passed over. Once that was finished, we continued to feast and fellowship.
We will be throwing one this summer in 2017. The date we’re shooting for is the first Saturday in August. If you would like to help out in anyway, please feel free to contact me via comments or email (which can be found in the “Contact” section).
Here are some pictures from the event:
