City Harvest is and always has been the New York City community's response to hunger. City Harvest links the food industry and countless organizations, foundations, corporations and private citizens together to help feed their hungry neighbors. City Harvest helps feed the nearly two million New Yorkers who face hunger each year.
City Harvest rescues some 136,000 pounds of food each day.
City Harvest regularly give food to more than 500 community programs.
It costs City Harvest just 25 cents to rescue and deliver a pound of food.
93 cents of every dollar donated directly supports their programs fighting hunger in New York City.
City Harvest partners with residents that are directly affected by hunger and diet-related diseases to address the underlying causes. Their food rescue work has expanded to include programs which provide nutrition education, increase the availability of produce, and build the capacity of our agency network. They also work to advocate on behalf of low-income New Yorkers to promote local, state and federal anti-hunger policies and programs.
