Daily News Food Drive

October 27, 2015 - January 15, 2016

Help City Harvest and the Daily News collect non-perishable food to stock shelves at 500 soup kitchens, food pantries and other community food programs across the city. Running a food drive helps City Harvest provide good food during the holiday season when so many of our neighbors struggle to put food on their tables. 

Kids Can Help Competition

All participating schools will be automatically entered into the Kids Can Help Competition. Thanks to Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group, the school in each borough that collects the most food will win a library prize pack. You may run your school’s drive at any time between October 27 and January 15.  

Help us reach our goal of collecting 1 million pounds to help feed hungry New Yorkers this holiday season!

Any business, organization or school can run a food drive for City Harvest!

Interested in donating funds? Every $1 helps City Harvest rescue 4 pounds of good food. Donate to the Daily News Virtual Food Drive here.
