Known as much for his charitable works as his musical prowess, electronic iconoclast PAUL VAN DYK (PvD) has teamed with RPM Presents & Pacha NYC to benefit the non-profit organization FEED through its partnership with retailer Target. The Grammy-nominated DJ & producer will be selling off 40 Exclusive VIP FEED Picnic Baskets at his Governors Island show in NYC onSunday, August 11 from 4pm - 12am.

The initiative conceptualized by Paul van Dyk and The Aurelia Group will provide over 1800 meals to hungry children through the FEED organization. Each of the 40 exclusive one-off “picnic baskets” will be made up of FEED products from and will grant the purchaser to a special backstage meet & greet picnic with Paul van Dyk himself, as well as VIP access to the concert and a luxe culinary experience from one of NYC’s top restaurants.  20 of the FEED bags will be offered to fans who have already purchased tickets and 20 will be made available to the general public who have not yet purchased their tickets through the links below.

“It is gratifying to enable my fans to connect to FEED's efforts in such a positive way,” says Paul van Dyk. “Electronic music lovers are some of the most engaging people in the world,and I am indebted to them for helping make a difference.”

This event will be special for a myriad of reasons. It is Paul van Dyk’s only New York City

concert in 2013.  The performance will feature an all new visual show from PvD themed to accompany his highly anticipated upcoming album THE POLITICS OF DANCING 3 out later this year.

About FEED:

FEED began in 2006 when acclaimed model and activist Lauren Bush designed a bag to benefit the United Nations World Food Programme's (WFP) School Feeding program. As a WFP Honorary Student Spokesperson, Lauren visited countries around the world in Asia, Latin America, and Africa where WFP is operating and was inspired by the plight of the people she met on her travels. She took a special interest in WFP's School Feeding program, which feeds and educates hungry children. She first created the FEED 1 bag, a reversible burlap and organic cotton bag reminiscent of the bags of food distributed by WFP, to help raise funds and awareness around these school feeding operations. It was stamped with "FEED the children of the world" and the number ‘1’ to signify that each bag feeds one child in school for one year. And in 2007, FEED Projects LLC was founded by Lauren Bush and Ellen Gustafson to produce and sell these bags.

To date, FEED has been able to raise enough money through the sale of products to provide over 60 million school meals to children around the world through WFP. FEED has also partnered with the US Fund for UNICEF, raising much needed funds for their Vitamin A and micronutrient supplements program and providing over 46,000 children with essential nutrients.

In addition to the company, FEED started a nonprofit organization called the FEED Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting programs and organizations that are effectively working to fight hunger and eliminate malnutrition throughout the world.
