Hunger in NYC

No New Yorker should have to worry about where their next meal will come from.

City Harvest is committed to being here, rescuing fresh produce and delivering it for free to help feed New Yorkers across the five boroughs who are experiencing food insecurity.

From Our Participants

Ana, a community member who visits City Harvest’s Prince Hall Mobile Market in Manhattan:

“I go to the grocery store and I almost cry because everything is so expensive, especially the eggs, the meat, everything. I know how to manage my money. I don’t buy expensive clothes, but I’d rather pay my bills than buy food. [City Harvest] has helped me a lot. I’m very grateful.”



Denise, a community member who visits City Harvest’s Stapleton Mobile Market on Staten Island:

“I look at my pantry at home and I don’t have onions, potatoes, sweet potatoes. There’s no way to adjust to it. You have to, because you need to eat, but [prices are] just so much higher. I just take it as it comes—what else can you do?”
