A Virtual Food Drive is an easy way to raise funds to help City Harvest feed our neighbors in need. We’ll help you set up a webpage, create a fundraising goal and share your page with friends, family and co-workers. A $25 donation helps feed 32 families for a day.
Since helping to start the food rescue movement in 1982, we have rescued and delivered over 1 billion pounds of food that would have otherwise gone to waste to help feed the more than 1.5 million New Yorkers in need.
For many New Yorkers, income hasn’t kept up with the rising cost of living: almost half of New York City households—over 2.5 million men, women and children—lack the income needed to cover basic necessities like food, housing, transportation, and childcare.
Whether you have experience in teaching and nutrition, are interested in working with local farmers, or simply want to give back to your community, your passion and time are important resources in the fight against hunger.
