• You and/or your product must be from Harlem/made in Harlem!

• You must produce 800 to 1,000 samples to give away only. No items will be for sale.

• Food products that can be served at room temperature or cold are optimal. Products requiring heating/electricity will be at an additional cost to you.

• To serve your samples, by the time of the festival, you must have:

• a Certificate in Food Protection issued by the NYC Department of Health, and

• either a Food Establishment Permit (for restaurants/food trucks) or a Temporary Food Establishment Permit (everyone else). If not, you will be responsible for hiring a server from the festival caterer at an hourly fee.

Email your submission with a photo of the product, a bio and a brief, 200-words or less, description and reason why you should be chosen to AmNewsFOOD@SCHOPnyc.com, subject line “I’m So AmNewsFOOD,” no later than Friday, April 14, 2017.
