Emeril, Tommy, Jessica and others all come together at Macys

One of the things I've been working on with Macy's is a project called Come Together, which we launched on September 15th.  My friend, Chef Emeril Lagasse and I helped to host a special VIP dinner party held at Macy's flagship store at Herald Square in New York City.  The purpose of the Come Together campaign is to help fight domestic hunger.  Macy's is urging people to host dinner parties in their homes and to have their guests pledge a donation to Feeding America.  In return, Macy's will match these donations dollar-for-dollar until the total goal of 10 million meals is reached.  It's interesting to note that one dollar provides dinner for seven.  You can find out more details and other ways of contributing at And if you haven't already seen this commercial on television, please enjoy
