Zombiefest – a Food Bank For New York City Charity Event

The Food Bank For New York City is partnering with indieScreen to host a charity event to support Food Bank For New York City’s continuous efforts to fight hunger.

During the event, people will be asked to dress as zombies and everyone will “crawl” or walk down Metropolitan Ave., toward indieScreen. After the crowd of zombies arrives at indieScreen, participants will have the option to screen the popular 1968 zombie film, “Night of the Living Dead” in zombie attire. A portion of the ticket price will go toward the Food Bank For New York City. After the film, participants can go to The Cove where the charity event will continue! There will be beer specials and a portion of the proceeds made will also benefit the Food Bank For New York City.

Food Bank For New York City recognizes 27 years as the city's major hunger-relief organization working to end food poverty throughout the five boroughs. As one of the country's largest food banks, their mission is to end hunger in New York City by organizing food, information and support for community survival and dignity.

indieScreen is a brand new theater and entertainment space located on the Southside of Williamsburg, Brooklyn that features a sophisticated A/V room, a restaurant, and a full bar.
