While the dining room is the center of American family traditions during the holiday season, not everyone has one. In fact, the average New York City apartment is nearly half the size of the U.S. average. That's why Marie Callender's, part of the Conagra Brands portfolio, is helping New Yorkers enjoy the comforts of home, in three celebrity designed dining rooms that can be reserved to host holiday gatherings.

The Dining Room by Marie Callender's, located at 68 Greene St. in SoHo, is a three-dining-room space co-designed by Jennie Garth, Stacy London and Daphne Oz, in conjunction with celebrity event planner Platinum Events. Those who reserve a room can host up to 15 guests, depending on the room. Guests will be served a three-course meal featuring elevated comfort foods like Fried Mashed Potato Bites, Vermont White Cheddar Mac & Cheese and Pumpkin Pie Broiler S'Mores, inspired by and featuring Marie Callender's meals, pot pies, and desserts in an inventive, unique way.

Anyone can reserve a room at The Dining Room by Marie Callender's by making a minimum $100 donation to Habitat for Humanity New York City. The reservation includes the use of one of the dining rooms from 7 to 9 p.m. eastern on one evening between December 12 to 17.

Additionally, The Dining Room by Marie Callender's will be open to the public for walk-throughs from 12-4 p.m. EST December 10 and 17.

"I've always had a passion for home décor and entertaining, so being able to design a room in The Dining Room by Marie Callender's, just felt right to me," says Garth. "There's nothing better than enjoying comfort foods with loved ones, and if you aren't able to be with family this season, this is a special way to enjoy the comforts of home away from home."
