We believe that no New Yorker should go hungry.
City Harvest rescues perfectly good, nutritious food that would otherwise go to waste and delivers it for free to New Yorkers experiencing hunger. Over the past 40 years, we have rescued and distributed over one billion pounds of food for our neighbors across the five boroughs who are struggling to put meals on the table.
