WSP NYCDPN - 2021 CITY HARVEST VIRTUAL FUNDRAISER
This year we are Moving NYC CANsit Forward.
This is a CANhattan bound express train. The next stop is City Harvest. Transfer is available to the C A N Train. Stand clear of the closing doors, please.
New York City wouldn’t be the city that never sleeps if it weren’t for the subway. Whether you’re going from CANhattan to CANey Island, the subway is vital to keeping New Yorkers on the move. The future of NYC relies on keeping the city CANnected – moving individuals to opportunities of work, education, and leisure. Our resilience comes with innovation in infrastructure, CANsit, and dedication to the people. We need to keep the city moving, but we also need to make sure New Yorkers are fed. Don’t delay, help us stay on track to beat food insecurity and feed the people that make this city great.
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, we 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. We work alongside our community partners to boost community capacity, expand nutrition education, and strengthen local food systems. For more than 35 years, City Harvest has always been there to feed our city—one day, one meal, one New Yorker at a time.
WSP USA - NYC DPN is happy to contribute to City Harvest in 2021, as we continue to promote their efforts in this dire time of need. We are excited to participate in the annual design competition "CANstruction". CANstruction is a design/build competition involving teams from the AEC (architecture, engineering, construction) industry, who construct amazing structures made entirely of unopened cans of food. The final design is constructed in one adrenaline-filled night and are then put on display at Brookfield Place in Lower Manhattan and then "de-CANstructed" with all food donations delivered to City Harvest.
