Our FEED partnership launches THIS WEEK and we’re excited to announce we have even more news to share! We are so lucky to have some incredible co-hostesses for select suppers in our LPQ x FEED Supper series! Allow us to introduce the co-hostesses slated for several of our New York and Washington DC area suppers: Lauren, Rebecca, Carly and Ksenia.

Lauren Bush Lauren, Founder of FEED

Thursday, September 17 at LPQ 65th & Lexington [Buy tickets]

Lauren Bush Lauren Intro

On her travels around the world as a World Food Programme Honorary Spokesperson, Lauren Bush Lauren witnessed the effects of hunger firsthand. In places like Cambodia, Chad and Guatemala, she also saw a program making a dent in child hunger malnutrition: school meals. When a child is given a free, nutritious school lunch, it can break the cycle of poverty she was born into and empower her to change her own life. Lauren founded FEED in 2007 with the simple idea of creating products that would engage people in the fight against hunger in a tangible way.

Lauren is such an inspiration to us, and we count ourselves lucky to welcome her as a special guest at this evening! Only a couple seats left at this supper. Be sure to snag them quickly before they’re gone!

Rebecca Gallop, A Daily Something

September 24th at LPQ Clarendon [Buy tickets]

Rebecca Gallop - Intro

Rebecca is a prop stylist and event designer from Northern Virginia. Her blog, A Daily Something, is where she shares little bits of her life, hands-on projects, creative collaborations and anything else beautiful! Rebecca has worked with Kinfolk Magazine, West Elm, Beth Kirby of Local Milk, Anthropologie, Coca-Cola, & Simple Things Magazine. She is inspired by nature and history, and loves to incorporate the two in her work. She enjoys bringing people together through intimate gatherings and is busy furnishing and filling her early 1900s farmhouse, a place at which she hopes to bring friends and family together for years. Rebecca has two little girls: 2 years old and 8 months old, and loves every second of being a wife and mom.

We’re so excited to have Rebecca joining us at the Clarendon, VA supper on September 24th to put her own touches on the tablescape. With her keen eye for beautiful simplicity, we can’t wait to see what she comes up with. Although we’re looking forward to each and every one of our suppers, we think this supper will be truly special!

What do you admire about FEED?

I love that the Feed Supper campaign enables us to truly share a meal (many meals) with others. We all love inviting friends and family for a shared meal, so why not also ask friends & family to extend their reach help raise money for those in need in the US and around the world?

What does co-hosting a supper with LPQ mean to you?

I love any chance I can get to style a dinner table….this Feed Supper is extra exciting because of the community’s goal of raising 2 million meals! It’s fun to be part of something so large and beyond my normal sphere of influence! I love looking through the #feedsupper album to see how folks around the world are celebrating & contributing!

How do you feel a well styled table contributes to the overall experience of a gathering?

To me, a well styled table is as essential as the food at a gathering. This doesn’t mean anything too stuffy or formal. It merely means letting your guests know – through a flower here, a folded napkin there, and maybe a gift, and just the idea anticipating their needs – that someone thought about their experience and took the time to make it a beautiful one.

Carly Heitlinger, The College Prepster

Friday, September 25th at LPQ Georgetown [Buy tickets]

Carly Heitlinger

Carly Heitlinger is also known as The College Prepster, which is the blog she started during her freshman year at Georgetown University. She graduated in 2012 and recently moved to Connecticut.

What do you admire about FEED?

I love that the organization realizes the importance of a simple meal and the impact a healthy lunch can have on a developing child, both physically and educationally. I love that each product is stamped with a number to signify how many meals that one purchase will provide.

What does co-hosting a supper with LPQ mean to you?

I am so excited to co-host the Georgetown supper. It’s so incredible that each person who attends is helping to sponsor 465 meals to families in need.

KSENIA ADULOVA, Breakfast Criminals

Tuesday, October 6th at LPQ Montague, Brooklyn Heights [Buy tickets]

Ksenia intro

Ksenia is a traveler, yogini and superfood breakfast aficionado who believes that better breakfasts make you a happier person. By day, she’s a digital marketing consultant and fashion blogger at Visual Therapy and co-founder of ethical shopping movement #FairTuesday and by night, she’s the chief foodie behind Instagram sensation Breakfast Criminals.

What do you admire about FEED?

FEED is a great example of a company that allows us to change the world through what we buy, and with their suppers campaign, with what we eat. Social entrepreneurship is very close to my heart, and I admire the way FEED makes giving back easy.

What does co-hosting a supper with LPQ mean to you?

Food has the power to bring people together, build community, and create change. The act of coming together consciously in itself is a powerful thing, but when the gathering’s purpose is to feed the world, it’s that much more special. I’m really excited to facilitate one of LPQ x FEED suppers for a great cause, and get to know my community better over a delicious seasonal meal.
