Macaron Day was created
by la Maison
WHAT IS MACARON DAY NYC?
In 2010, François Payard,
chef and owner of FP Patisserie and
François Payard Bakery in
New York, organized the first annual
Macaron Day in NYC. Macaron Day NYC is inspired by and
coincides annually with the Jour du
Macaron in Paris, created by la Maison Pierre Hermé
Paris in association with the Relais Desserts.
Join us on
Wednesday, March 20,
2013 to discover
macarons in New York as bakeries across the
city once again come together to provide free macarons
To receive a
free macaron tell the shop you are there for
Macaron Day NYC.
Participating locations will
provide one macaron per customer with
quantities limited by location.
Want more macarons? At many participating
locations, a portion of the day’s macaron
sales will be donated to City-Harvest.
Indulge in macarons while contributing
the efforts of City Harvest.
Now serving New
York City for 30 years, City Harvest (www.CityHarvest.org)
is the world's first food rescue
organization, dedicated to feeding the
city’s hungry men, women, and children. This
year, City Harvest will collect more than 42
million pounds of excess food from all
segments of the food industry, including
restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias,
manufacturers, and farms. This food is then
delivered free of charge to some 600
community food programs throughout New York
City by a fleet of trucks and bikes. City
Harvest helps feed the more than one million
New Yorkers that face hunger each year.
