AKF - Let's Feed NYC!
Each year, a dedicated group of AKFers design and build an 8-foot structure out of cans of food that are then donated to City Harvest. Canstruction is just one of the many events that cannot proceed this year due to COVID-19 but with food insecurity numbers on the rise, City Harvest needs our support more than ever. Please consider donating to help us continue to support City Harvest and feed our community!
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.
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 me make sure that no good food goes to waste while so many of our neighbors are in need. Together, we can make a difference one day, one meal, one person 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.
