Hunger in NYC is a solvable problem!
My children are extremely fortunate to have never experienced what it feels like to go hungry, and we are very fortunate to not know how terrible it must feel to be unable to properly feed them.
However, more than 1.4 million New Yorkers, including one in five children, are not so lucky, and they struggle to put healthy meals on their tables.
We enjoy some of the world's greatest restaurants, but too much good food from them still goes to waste. There is plenty of food in NYC to feed everyone - people are hungry around us only because we lack the funds for redistribution.
This is a solvable problem!
As you know, I've been a big supporter of City Harvest and I am currently a member of the Generation Harvest committee. This year, City Harvest will collect over 60 million pounds of excess food and deliver it free of charge to hundreds of soup kitchens, food pantries and other community food programs. By redirecting this nutritious food from the restaurants we frequent, supermarkets, manufacturers, farmers and markets, we can feed hungry people and reduce the environmental impact of food that would otherwise go to waste.
Please help me make sure that good food doesn't go to waste by donating to my campaign.
