On Saturday, September 29th, The United Way will host the LIVE UNITED Bridge Walk & Festival, starting in Foley Square, crossing the Brooklyn Bridge in culminating in Cadman Park Plaza with a festival featuring live music, food trucks and fun activities for the whole family.The LIVE UNITED Bridge Walk & Festival brings together thousands of individuals and teams from across the city to raise awareness of the urgent need to “bridge” critical gaps in educational achievement, income stability and access to healthy food for low-income New Yorkers. The 1.5 mile walk will begin in Foley Square, cross the Brooklyn Bridge and culminate in Cadman Park Plaza with a festival featuring live music, specialty food trucks, and fun activities for children and youth. Also at the Festival, dozens of United Way’s partner nonprofits will be on hand to share information about the wide range of opportunities they offer for New Yorkers of all ages to get involved as volunteers and advocates.

Some of NYC’s favorite food trucks including, Andy’s Italian Ices, Bistro Truck, Big D’s Grub Truck, Cinnamon Snail, Crisp on Wheels, Go Burger, and The Jamaican Dutchy, will also be on hand.
