    The 21 Express at 21 Club for Sweet September


By going out to eat this September, you’ll be helping feed New Yorkers in need of a hot meal.

Each year, Dine Out for No Kid Hungry enlists restaurants to help feed underprivileged children — and there are many of them, with more than 20 percent living in food-insecure homes nationwide.

Each of the nearly 100 participating restaurants in the city gives back in its own way, whether it’s Tarallucci e Vino (the casual Italian restaurant just opened a fourth location in Nomad) donating $1 for every pasta dish sold, or Emily in Brooklyn giving 10 percent of what you spend on chicken wings to the organization. Each dollar donated provides 10 meals, so eat generously.

Save room for dessert duringSweet September, a program where participating sweet shops and restaurants donate a portion of proceeds from special treats to benefit homebound seniors through Citymeals on Wheels.

The organization is partnering with 30 restaurants and bakeries for decadent eats like the old-school train cake at21 Club, churros with chocolate atHuertasandColonie’s perfect end-of-summer treat of sticky date cake with salted crème fraiche gelato.

Last year, your sweet tooth helped raise over $32,000 for the nonprofit group’s mission of delivering over two million meals to elderly residents annually.
