Last week, we ran a guide to restaurants and venues where the Haitian community in New York has been convening to share food, stories, and news from back home. Since then, the charity movement has expanded beyond expat hangouts and inspired various others outside of the Haitian diaspora to lend a helping hand. Ilili, for one, has rallied 40 American restaurants, most in New York, to join them in donating 10 percent of this Sunday’s sales to relief efforts. Our updated list for the week follows; again, if we missed any food-related benefits, leave them in the comments.
Magnolia Bakery: Cupcakes with the Red Cross logo sell for $3; $1 of that will go to the American Red Cross. [Grub Street]
’wichcraft: “On Monday, January 25th, ‘wichcraft partners with La Colombe Torrefaction, Harry Wils & Co, and Imperial Paper to donate all proceeds from ‘wichcraft coffee beverage sales to the American Red Cross relief effort in Haiti.” They’re also donating half the proceeds made from sales of the ’wichcraft book for the entire month of February.

Restaurant Week Truck: For each serving of soup you buy, a dollar goes to benefit the Haiti Relief Fund at the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City. Where to find it: “The truck will cater to patrons between 11am and 2pm, January 25-29 in Midtown (Broadway between 50th and 51st Streets), February 1-3 in the Flatiron District (Fifth Avenue between 18th and 19th Streets) and February 4-5 in TriBeCa (Greenwich Street between Warren and Murray Streets).” [Grub Street]
Kampuchea, The Norry at Kampuchea, and Num Pang Sandwich Shop: This first two of the Cambodian trio will donate 20 percent (and Num Pang will donate 25 percent) of this Saturday and Sunday’s sales to UNICEF. [Grub Street]
