Each year during the holiday season, Le Parker Meridien and City Harvest present the Gingerbread Extravaganza, a celebration of gingerbread across New York City. This year, participating bakeries, pastry chefs and restaurants created stunning gingerbread structures to go along with the 2013 theme, “Quintessential New York.” Guests had the opportunity to visit and vote on their favorite creations by donating to City Harvest, with each $1 counting as one vote. Restaurant partners across the city also offered special menu items in celebration of the Gingerbread Extravaganza, with proceeds benefitting City Harvest.

Thanks to the support of these great restaurant and food industry partners, the 2013 Gingerbread Extravaganza raised nearly $12,000—enough to help feed over 16,000 hungry families in New York City!

Congratulations to the 2013 “People’s Choice Award” winner:
Coney Island by Rolling Pin Productions with Aperitivo Restaurant,
whose creation received the most votes!
