Buy Local, Feed Local: Purchase a meal and help feed a member of your community

The Forum is excited to present "Buy Local, Feed Local" a new event series bringing local restauranteurs and small businesses to The Forum's cafe space as part of a rotating pop-up schedule. The series launched in February with local favorite Charles Pan-Fried Chicken, and in March we added Harlem's own Lavitta's Creole to the lineup. 

We're thrilled to welcome both vendors back this April: Lavitta's Creole on April 4, 11, and 25, and Charles Pan-Fried Chicken on April 18. Select menu items will be available for purchase during lunchtime on Thursdays, in The Forum's east Atrium. 

The Forum is thrilled to partner with neighborhood eateries to showcase their culinary delights to the Manhattanville community. Meals purchased at The Forum will help provide free meals to neighbors in need.

Stay tuned for details on upcoming pop-ups!
