There are 1.4 million New Yorkers facing hunger today. That means there are 1.4 million reasons to believe in City Harvest. What’s yours?
Legislative priorities, like those set forth in the original federal budget that called for dramatic cuts to community-based programs, could deeply impact low-income New Yorkers as they aim to meet basic necessities. Many of the people we serve face difficult choices about where to spend their money, and the lines atand are growing longer. New York City’s leading, privately funded anti-hunger organization, City Harvest has always been there, no matter what happens, to ensure anyone who is hungry in our city has a place to turn for food.
To help keep our trucks filled with good food for the nearly 1.4 million men, women, children and seniors who are counting on us, we are launching the #IBelieveInCityHarvest campaign. Over the next two months, we’ll be sharing reasons why New Yorkers believe in our work and raising additional funds to ensure that everyone in our city who needs food has access to it.
City Harvest has always been about New Yorkers taking care of each other. We’ve been there through some of our city’s toughest times to make sure that one thing our neighbors don’t have to worry about is whether they’ll be able to feed themselves and their families.
Join with us again today. In a city with such abundance, no one should go hungry. Make a donation and post why you believe in City Harvest on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using #IBelieveInCityHarvest. You can also send us your reason at [email protected]. Together, we have the power to make a difference in the lives of New Yorkers right here in our community. And now more than ever, we must come together to take care of each other.
