Housing Development Corporation - Food Drive 2021
City Harvest is New York’s first and largest food rescue organization, helping to feed millions of New Yorkers who struggle to put meals on their tables. This year, City Harvest will rescue 109 million pounds of fresh, nutritious food and deliver it—free of charge—to more than 400 food pantries, soup kitchens, community partners and our own Mobile Markets across the five boroughs. City Harvest works alongside community partners to boost community capacity, expand nutrition education, and strengthen local food systems.
As our city continues to grapple with the devastating economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of New Yorkers relying on City Harvest has skyrocketed, and thousands of our neighbors are turning to food pantries and soup kitchens for the first time. Please help us make sure that no good food goes to waste while so many of our neighbors are in need.
This year, the New York City Housing Development Corporation (HDC) seeks to aid City Harvest in their mission to make a difference, one meal at a time. Every $1 donated helps City Harvest feed two New Yorkers for a day. By donating, you’ll help keep City Harvest’s trucks on the road and filled with nutritious food for our neighbors in need.
Our goal is to raise $1,000 towards this mission.
Further, HDC will match donations dollar for dollar up to $1,000, once the fundraiser is complete.
