Barclays Capital Markets Skip Lunch Fight Hunger (COVID Edition)
With the COVID-19 crisis forcing schools and many businesses to close, NYC’s children and their families urgently need help putting food on their table. City Harvest is committed to meeting the increased need as the devastating economic impact of COVID-19 unfolds.
Since we are not able to be together as a team at this time and complete our typical fast, we are asking you to make a pledge or share something with the team that may inspire your colleagues to pitch in that extra dollar because every contribution matters.
Get creative, showcase your hidden talents, and don't be afraid to broadcast your efforts via YouTube or Instagram! By no means is this required to participate, but want it to be a way to stay connected during a time when we are all apart!

Barclays has made a £50 million commitment through the Barclays COVID-19 Colleague Matched Donations Programme to match colleagues’ personal donations or active fundraising to support your chosen charities who are supporting communities impacted by COVID-19. Because of Barclays' commitment, 100% of your donation will be matched until the £50m program matching commitment has been reached. To streamline the process, we will happily apply for matching for you, so please don't apply yourself through the site to make sure we avoid double counting!
Pret A Manger has teamed up with City Harvest to support your efforts and the Skip lunch Fight Hunger campaign. Give $45 or more online before May 31 and you'll receive a special thank you voucher from Pret A Manger in June. *While supplies last.
