Right now, 1 in 3 New York City children don’t always know where their next meal will come from. The need for food in New York City has only grown as the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic crisis rages on. Since last March, City Harvest has rescued and delivered, free of charge, more than 163 million pounds of nutritious food—a more than 100% increase over the same period last year—to help feed the growing number of our neighbors who are depending on us.
Through Share Lunch Fight Hunger, an online fundraising competition, hundreds of businesses and individuals in New York City came together to help make sure no child in our city goes hungry during this difficult time. Thank you to everyone who supported our 2021 Share Lunch Fight Hunger campaign.
We are so happy to announce that because of your generosity, we have raised enough to help feed more than 52,000 children for the entire summer! We’d like to congratulate our top five fundraising teams: our first-place winner is Citi, followed by Lazard, JPMorgan Chase, Ernst & Young, and KPMG.
Thank you to our Share Lunch Fight Hunger Co-Chairs:
