Individual Giving

Nearly one in five New Yorkers don't know where or when their next meal is coming. Your support helps us ensure that doors remain open at community food programs across the city where our hungry neighbors turn for groceries and meals. Last year, more than 45,000 individual donors made contributions in support of City Harvest's work. Each dollar helps City Harvest feed four people for a day; 93 cents of every dollar donated directly supports our anti-hunger programs.

You'll get a customized fundraising page that you can share with family, friends and coworkers via email and social media. Get started here.

You can double or even triple your gift to City Harvest if you or your spouse work for a company that matches your gift. Find out if your company offers matching gifts.
