Metalicious for City Harvest
Welcome to the "$30k for City Harvest" page!
“Seeing homeless people on the street every day, in the city where I live, have my business in and raise my children in-- I wanted to do something about it,” is how Stephanie Maslow-Blackman discovered City Harvest. Contributing to City Harvest was the way she could make a difference.
Every year for the past 12 years, Stephanie’s jewelry company-- Metalicious.com-- has donated a % of their proceeds to City Harvest. It's usually enough to feed about 150 families per year.
In August 2018, Stephanie thought, "What would it look like to raise enough to feed 1500 families?" And $30k for City Harvest was born.
But Stephanie couldn't do it alone, so joined by Ceclia Golombek who has a background in event management-- they immediately started brainstorming events and ways to raise the money.
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 this year 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 neighbors in need, we can support our local communities and reduce the environmental impact of food that would otherwise go to waste.
Please help us make sure that good food doesn't go to waste when so many people are hungry by donating to this campaign. Together, we can make a difference one 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 neighbors in need.
