Skip Lunch Fight Hunger 2020

Standard Chartered

 As one of Standard Chartered’s volunteer partners since 2011, City Harvest is New York City’s largest food rescue organization, helping to feed struggling New Yorkers free of charge via hundreds of food pantries, soup kitchens and other community partners across the five boroughs.

Standard Chartered has joined City Harvest’s Skip Lunch Fight Hunger campaign, which is dedicated to feeding children in need when access to school meals has become limited. 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.
