The project is sponsored by Macy's and Feeding America, and aims to assist 10 million hungry people suffering from lack of food in the U.S.  Funds raised toward the project will be matched by Macy's until 10 million meals have been served.

Emeril, along with Martha Stewart, will help launch the campaign by hosting a VIP dinner party during New York City Fashion Week on September 15th. That same day, consumers can be a part of the "World's Largest Dinner Party" at over 650 Macy's stores across the nation.

Those wishing to be further involved can do so in three ways:

1)  Host or attend a "Come Together" dinner party.  If you're the host, request that your guests make a donation to "Come Together" instead of bringing a side dish or a bottle of wine -- and Macy's also has a few helpful ideas on how to manage the details.

2)  Make a donation at Macy's in-store or on their website. One dollar provides a meal for seven people.

3)  Shop For the Cause. Attend a Macy's in-store event where a $5 admission ticket gains access to special sales that day. A portion of ticket sales will go directly to the Feeding America organization.
