Skip Lunch Fight Hunger 2020

Classical Virtual Concert

Dear Friends,

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 – right now. City Harvest is committed to meeting the increased need as the devastating economic impact of COVID-19 becomes a reality. During this time of uncertainty, you can help keep City Harvest's trucks full of food and on the road, 7 days a week, for our city's youngest New Yorkers and their families.

Nearly 335,000 New York City children are facing hunger, and that number may increase in the coming months. Support City Harvest's Skip Lunch Fight Hunger campaign today.

Together we can help feed New York City's children during this crisis.

• $15 helps feed 55 children for a day

• $45 helps feed 23 children for a week

•$75 helps feed 19 children for 2 weeks

• $150 helps feed 18 children for an entire month

Pret A Manger has teamed up with City Harvest to support your efforts and theSkip 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.
