On Wednesday, November 30, when the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) holds an all-important hearing on fracking in New York City,  one of our founders, chef Heather Carlucci-Rodriguez, will be there.  Prior to testifying at the hearing itself, she will speak at a noon press conference as the lead representative of the restaurant industry. The press conference will take place outside of the hearing venue, at 199 Chambers Street in Tribeca. We urge everone who cares about the purity of our drinking water and foodshed to turn out  that day: for the press conference, the hearing itself, and the rally at 4:30 p.m. See you there! If you can’t make it,  please take a few minutes to share your concerns about fracking with Governor Cuomo.
