Six years ago, co-founders Marcus Samuelsson and Herb Karlitz launched Harlem EatUp! to shine a spotlight on the iconic Harlem community, its small businesses and restaurants. In lieu of the 6th year festival, Harlem EatUp! has created a TV special to promote Harlem businesses and support the Harlem community which has been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Donations will benefit non-profits which fight food insecurity and serve Harlem, its residents in need, its businesses and the City of New York: Citymeals, World Central Kitchen’s Restaurants for the People in the metro NY region, Harlem Park to Park, and Uptown Grand Central.
