Let's Feed NYC!
Thirty-five years ago, City Harvest pioneered food rescue when a handful of New Yorkers stepped up to help our neighbours in need. Since then, they have rescued and delivered over 600 million pounds of food to feed New York City.
Today, more than 1.2 million New Yorkers, including one in five children, struggle to put meals on their tables. This year, City Harvest will collect 61 million pounds of excess food and deliver it free of charge to hundreds of soup kitchens, food pantries and other community food programs across the five boroughs. By redirecting this nutritious food from supermarkets, manufacturers, farmers markets, and restaurants to our neighbours in need, we can support our local communities and reduce the environmental impact of food that would otherwise go to waste.
I am honoured to sit on Generation Harvest, City Harvest's Junior Board, where I serve as an advocate for and ambassador of this incredible organisation to young philanthropists and like-minded donors. Please help me make sure that good food doesn't go to waste when so many people are hungry by donating to my campaign. Together, we can make a difference on day, one meal, and one person at a time.
Every $1 donated helps City Harvest rescue and deliver four pounds of good food. By donating, you’ll help keep City Harvest’s trucks on the road and filled with nutritious food for our neighbours in need.
Through the end of the year, I will match every dollar donated, up to $1000. My former roommate and current excellent friend, Bob Loos, will also match every dollar donated, up to $1000. Lastly, another Generation Harvest member will match up to $15000 (across all fundraising). This means that every $1 donated will amount to $4!!
