Description

Now serving New York City for 30 years, City Harvest is the world's first food rescue organization, dedicated to feeding the city's hungry men, women, and children.

This year, City Harvest will collect more than 42 million pounds of excess food from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, and farms. This food is then delivered free of charge to some 600 community food programs throughout New York City by a fleet of trucks and bikes. City Harvest helps feed the more than one million New Yorkers that face hunger each year.

While meeting the immediate need for food in the five boroughs, City Harvest ensures hungry New Yorkers have the food they need on an ongoing basis. Healthy Neighborhoods is a suite of programs designed to improve healthy food access and knowledge in four neighborhoods within New York City (fifth coming soon). Working directly with residents, businesses, and community organizations, City Harvest's goals are to relieve food insecurity, build nutritional knowledge at the individual, family, and community levels, and increase the access people have to affordable fresh fruits and vegetables.
