In 2010, François Payard,
chef and owner of FP Patisserie, François Payard Bakery
and Payard Patisserie & Bistro, organized the first annual Macaron Day in NYC. Macaron Day NYC is inspired by and
coincides annually with Jour du
Macaron in Paris, created by La Maison Pierre Hermé
Paris in association with the Relais Desserts.
Macaron Day will always take place on March
20th, the first day of Spring.
Join us this
Sunday, March 20,
2016 to discover macarons in New York, as
bakeries across the city once again come
together to promote macarons and to help
raise awareness (and money) for City
Harvest. Participating locations will provide
one macaron per customer, with limited quantities by
location, between 10am and 5pm, or until
supplies last. To receive a
free macaron tell the shop you are there for
Macaron Day NYC.
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 to
the efforts of City Harvest.
1982 as the world’s first food rescue
organization, City Harvest is dedicated
to helping feed the more than 1.4
million New Yorkers facing hunger. City
Harvest will collect 50 million pounds
of excess food from restaurants,
grocers, bakeries, manufacturers, and
farms, and deliver it free of charge to
more than 500 community food programs
across the city this year. In addition
to helping meet the immediate need for
food, City Harvest takes a long-term
approach to fighting hunger by
partnering with residents, local
organizations and businesses through
Healthy Neighborhoods programs which
increase the availability of affordable
fruits and vegetables in low-income
communities and provide the nutrition
education and resources to maintain a
wholesome, food-secure diet.
