The 40th Annual Daily News Food Drive

Millions of New Yorkers across the five boroughs continue to struggle with rising costs of necessities like food, rent, and gas. Thank you for helping to feed our neighbors in need. 

For 40 years, City Harvest and the New York Daily News have partnered to host the city’s largest food drive, taking place this year from Tuesday, October 25, 2022 through Friday, January 6, 2023. Our goal is to collect over 700,000 pounds of nutritious food, which we will deliver, free of charge, to hundreds of food pantries and other community food programs across the five boroughs.

This year, there are a number of ways you can get involved.
