Since 2014, EAT (RED) DRINK (RED) SAVE LIVES has united the culinary community and rallied them in the fight to end, or “86”, AIDS. They ate and drank their way through (RED) cocktails and menu items at thousands of locations, watched chefs and their patrons throw food emojis on Twitter and served dinner for 1,000 out on the Hudson River in the middle of a thunderstorm. EAT (RED) has grown from a 10 day pilot program in 2014 to a month long, full-fledged campaign in 2015, evolving to become a recognizable brand in the culinary world.


In honor of the third annual EAT (RED) SAVE LIVES campaign and (RED)’s 10th anniversary, they are calling upon chefs, restaurants, food trucks and bars this June to join at the table to 86 AIDS. For the entire month of June, they are focusing on the bread & butter of the EAT (RED) campaign— "one night only” events and experiences. Chef Mario Batali is leading the campaign, which kicks off on June 2, 2016 with the second annual (RED) Supper. Batali, Anthony Bourdain and a cast of talented chefs will be entertaining and serving a four course dinner for 1,000 in New York City. To carry on the Supper franchise, (RED) is recruiting chefs across the country to host their own renditions of the (RED) Supper at their establishments for one night only: June 5, the day that AIDS was discovered more than 30 years ago. Throughout the month of June, there will be even more EAT (RED) pop-up events such as bar crawls, happy hours, food truck rallies and food markets that will keep campaign momentum going.
