To our Food Network & Cooking Channel audience,
First and foremost, if you have been impacted by Hurricane Sandy, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and sound.
Many of you probably didn’t realize, but our Food Network & Cooking Channel headquarters are located in lower Manhattan. Like most of that area, our office is currently still without power and our entire staff is doing their very best to work remotely (if possible) while the area begins the process of returning to normalcy. Despite the hurricane, our New York team as well as personnel in offices not directly impacted by the storm, have been working tirelessly to keep our programming and digital content updated and available for you.
Food Network & Cooking Channel have made a corporate donation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief fund to support restoration and care efforts benefiting people impacted by Hurricane Sandy. I know that our team right here in New York, despite limited or no access to power or internet, has volunteered with many worthwhile organizations to aid recovery efforts and we will continue to do everything we can.
We will keep you updated in the coming days, but in the meantime, we ask for your patience as New York, and the entire East Coast, recover from the devastating impact of Hurricane Sandy.
President Food Network & Cooking Channel
