Family Style To Go – Virtual Food Fest (NTWRK)

Saturday, April 24 to Sunday, April 25
NTWRK App

Hot off the success of Unboxed festival, livestream shopping platform NTWRK announces a new partnership with streetwear brand and media platform The Hundreds on virtual food festival Family Style To Go. Co-hosted by Canadian chef/TV personality Matty Matheson and rap artist/songwriter E-40, the global digital event will take place on the NTWRK app on April 24th & 25th. Family Style To Go will celebrate the intersection of cuisine and streetwear while benefiting independent restaurants affected by COVID-19.

Each action-packed episode will feature livestream shopping and entertainment curated by The Hundreds, pairing streetwear heavy-hitters with the hottest chefs, restaurants and brands from the culinary universe. From cooking demonstrations to curated virtual tasting rooms, this first-ever online edition of Family Style will harness the power of the NTWRK platform to deliver one-of-a-kind live entertainment experiences directly to consumers. A lineup of 30+ celebrated brands, designers and personalities will come together to create exclusive products with restaurants from around the globe, offering food denizens a new opportunity to support their favorite eateries negatively impacted by the upheaval caused by the pandemic.

“I’ve been friends with Bobby and Ben from The Hundreds since they started the brand over 18 years ago,” says Aaron Levant, CEO of NTWRK. “Over the years, we’ve worked together on dozens of projects from collaborations, trade shows, conferences, and more. I couldn’t be more excited to continue our organic partnership and collaboration into this new digital format where we are able to merge culinary and design at the highest level.”

“We’re creating a new, big platform and experience where guests from all over the world can support restaurants,” says Miles Canares, director and co-founder of Family Style, “By buying some of the best restaurant merch and collaborative products that anyone’s ever seen, festival attendees will do their part in supporting a great cause.”

A portion of the proceeds from Family Style To Go’s programming filled with entertainment and live merchandise drops will be donated to Independent Hospitality Coalition, which provides food and resources to communities and businesses disproportionately affected by COVID-19.
“We’re happy to work with NTWRK to host a virtual event done in support of independent restaurants,” says Ben Shenassafar, CEO of The Hundreds, “Each exclusive product collaboration between restaurants, food brands and popular streetwear brands and designers will be available for purchase globally and aid our local communities.”

“Family Style was founded on the notion of bringing communities together for a specially curated experience,” says Bobby Kim, co-founder of The Hundreds. “The pandemic has obviously taken a huge toll on the restaurant industry we knew and loved. Through Family Style To Go, we hope to use our platform to help make a positive difference during this time.”

Family Style To Go is NTWRK’s fifth virtual festival, following the successes of TRANSFER, BEYOND THE STREETS, Unboxed and Off Court, which will take place on March 27th & 28th. The string of bespoke online shopping events caters to wide reaching segments of the millennial and Gen-Z consumer markets and place NTWRK at the forefront of a new era of e-commerce.

New Releases in Children’s Books

In Mona Lisa in New York by Yevgenia Nayberg (3/9/21; ISBN: 978-3791374451; Hardcover $14.95; Ages 4-8; 32 pages), a love letter to New York City, Mona Lisa is a tourist who experiences the city for the first time, and finds art, love, and inspiration in unexpected places.

Mona Lisa is taking a trip to New York from the Louvre. Yes, that Mona Lisa. The one with the knowing smile. After hanging in the museum for a while she decides to explore the city. She slips out of her painting and meets Tag, a street art figure. He takes her on an adventure from the Bronx to the Brooklyn Bridge and it turns out Mona Lisa doesn’t know as much as she thought. In this beautiful and charming book, artist Yevgenia Nayberg, an immigrant to New York herself, shows young readers the city she has fallen in love with. Cleverly portraying da Vinci’s iconic subject as a world-weary, know-it-all, Nayberg takes readers on a tour of New York. Mona Lisa and Tag eat pizza in the Bronx, listen to jazz in Harlem, dance to salsa music on the High Line, and swim at Brighton Beach. As Mona Lisa says goodbye to her new friend, she–and the readers–come away with a profound appreciation of the city and its wonders.

Spend hours navigating the world’s great rivers with Great Rivers of the World by Volker Mehnert and illustrated by Martin Haake (3/23/21; ISBN: 978-3791374703; Hardcover $19.95; Ages 8-12; 40 pages), a vibrant, fact-filled book for kids that blends geography, history, and culture.

Where in the Rhein does the Nibelung Treasure lie? What river helps mark the prime meridian? Why do people make pilgrimages to the Indian city of Benares? Why is the Mekong called the “Nine Dragon” river in Vietnam? How does the Mississippi divide and unite the United States? These and hundreds of other facts are explored in this wonderfully illustrated atlas of the world’s great rivers. Each spread in this book offers a colorful map packed with drawings, figures, and facts. Cities that border the rivers are highlighted, as are distinct flora and fauna, significant natural and human-made features, and fascinating historical details. A “biography” of each river describes where it flows, and its importance to the communities it passes through. Special attention is given to the ecological health of the rivers–those that are thriving and those in danger of losing their valuable habitats. Along the way, young readers will come to understand the enormous impact that rivers have on our lives, while learning valuable information in a way that will spark their curiosity and imagination.

Come aboard the Polar Star and accompany its crew on their half-year stay in Antarctica. Through full-page illustrations, children will experience the work and life of these explorers and scientists as they study penguins, whales, and seals, measure the depth of the ice, chart wind speeds of up to 186 mph (300km/h), examine old volcanoes, and withstand some of the lowest temperatures ever recorded. Kids will also learn about Roald Amundsen and Robert Falcon Scott, the legendary explorers who first set foot on Antarctica. Equal parts thrilling adventure and in-depth exploration, this book is an unforgettable illustrated expedition to Antarctica that is sure to satisfy the boldest bedtime traveler.

Dryel At-Home Dry Cleaner

Dryel® uses a specific process to clean your dry clean only and special care clothes.

The heat of your dryer activates the cleaning solution in the Dryer Activated cleaning cloth to release a steam that removes body soils and odors from the clothes.
The Fabric Protection Bag maintains the optimal balance of cleaning agents and heat, allowing the steam to work thoroughly through the clothes, and then slowly vents the vapors out of the bag and dryer.
Dryel Booster Spray includes extra cleaning agents to remove stains, and add freshness to heavily soiled areas prior to putting the garments through the in-dryer system.

School Lunch Made Easy – Freeli

Parents packing lunches, juggling home-schooling and a job, or suffering from “COVID Cooking Fatigue” are turning to Freeli Foods. So are college students!

Back-to-school is more confusing than ever, from pre-K to college. With Freeli Foods, back-to-school meals don’t need to be difficult. Freeli is the first company to develop a unique heat and eat, all-natural refrigerated meal in a pouch that is high in protein, contains no added sugar, and has no artificial ingredients. Freeli heats in a microwave in 45 seconds and can be eaten out of the pouch, in a bowl, or you can cut off the top and dig in with a spoon. Children at appropriate ages, can even make for themselves. They are the perfect recipe for when you just can’t cook another meal, are making lunch, packing lunch or sending a care package to your favorite grad or undergrad. Freeli is available in four family favorite flavors: Mac & Cheese, Pasta & Meat Sauce, Chicken Noodle, and Burrito Bowl.

Since March of 2020, sales of Freeli, packaged in grab-and-go pouches, are up more than 50%. When stay at home measures were put into place, Freeli Foods quickly pivoted to make their meals available online. With free shipping, each meal is less than $4.

As colleges return, student complaints about the meals they are receiving are going viral. Schools are struggling with how to operate during a pandemic and feeding students, especially when quarantined, is an overwhelming task. Freeli is perfect to have on hand.

“Freeli is on a mission to make healthy ‘fast’ food the norm and not the exception. With obesity and diabetes on the rise, it is time families have a better for you option that doesn’t require hours of cooking and cleaning. Freeli is a wholesome, nutritious meal or snack and is not a purée” said Matthew Sade, Founder and CEO. “Just heat the BPA-free pouch and enjoy”.
