The New York City Wine and Food Festival kicked off on Thursday for its eighth year, and the theme is still the same, "Eat, Drink and End Hunger."

With events like tasting demos, 'Meatopia', and 'Veg Out' there are events for every foodie at heart.

Franklin Becker, executive chef at The Little Beet and co-founder of "Hungry Root" gave PIX11's Ojinika Obiekwe a preview of the festival's events.
