Pomi's 2022 Virtual Food Drive

Welcome to the Pomi 2022 Virtual Food Drive Fundraising Page!

Please join Pomi and City Harvest by participating in this Virtual Food Drive. Since March 2020, food insecurity rates in New York City have risen 36% overall, and a sobering 46% among children, according to an analysis by Feeding America. Compared to 2019, average monthly visits to New York City food pantries and soup kitchens are up 69%.  

As the holidays approach, we are seeing grocery prices rise at their fastest rate in 40 years. The cost of groceries is up more than 13%. With holiday staples surging, too, the price of turkeys is up 21% since 2021 – and up 60% since before the pandemic. 

With your help this winter, we will rescue and deliver enough food to help feed thousands of families across the city for the holidays. As we have done for 40 years, City Harvest continues to work hard, rescuing and delivering as much nutritious food as we can to help ensure every New York City family can put meals on their tables this holiday season. Additionally, Pomi is donating 2,268 cartons of Pomi 13oz Strained Tomatoes to City Harvest to help address rising food insecurity. 

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. During our 40 years serving New Yorkers in need, we have rescued more than one billion pounds of fresh, nutritious food and delivered it—free of charge—to hundreds of food pantries, soup kitchens, community partners, and our own Mobile Markets® across the five boroughs. This year, we will rescue and distribute more than 75 million pounds of nutritious food to our neighbors in need. City Harvest works alongside our community partners to boost community capacity, expand nutrition education, and strengthen local food systems. Since our founding in 1982, City Harvest has always been there to feed our city—one day, one meal, one New Yorker at a time.

Every $1.25 donated helps City Harvest feed one family in need 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.
