This week, the culinary creatives at Betony partnered wth No Kid Hungry to hold the third annual Produce Playoff. After “drafting” their ingredients at the Union Square Greenmarket, some of the world’s finest chefs and beverage experts, including event founders Bryce Shuman and Eamon Rockey (Betony), Bo Bech (Geist), Daniel Burns (Luksus), Flynn McGarry (Eureka), Danielle-Innes (Cosme), Mina Pizzaro (Betony), Leo Robitshcek (The NoMad), Caleb Ganzer (Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels), and Dean Fuerth (Betony), gathered to craft dishes and drinks that showcased their picks in the most delicious ways. More than $75,000 was raised over the course of the evening.
If you missed it, photographer Simon Lewis was on hand to document the prep, the fun, the food, and the spirits. Check out the slideshow below.

Share Our Strength co-founder Debbie Shore was on hand to highlight No Kid Hungry’s mission to end childhood hunger in America and highlight how every dollar and every voice counts in this quest. She told the crowd of attendees and participants, “I love the energy that Bryce and Eamon bring to everything they do and that they’ve found a unique way to share their strength and talents and that of all the collaborators here tonight. This [mission] takes an army.”
