- Hunger in NYC
- Donate Food
- Donate Funds
May 11 - June 21, 2015
City Harvest's annual Feed the Kids food drive, which runs from Mother's Day to Father's Day, asks New Yorkers to donate kid-friendly, non-perishable items to help provide much-needed food for our children over the summer when access to school meals may become limited. Schools, organizations, companies, and New York City's Fire and Police Departments come together to collect non-perishable food donations for City Harvest to pick-up and distribute to our network of more than 500 soup kitchens, food pantries, and other community food programs that serve hungry children and their families across the five boroughs.
Last year, Feed the Kids collected 250,000 pounds of food—enough to feed thousands of families in New York City for an entire summer.

Updated Food Drive tool kits and information will be available in early April.
