Hunger Action Month

This September, stand with City Harvest for Hunger Action Month to help feed New Yorkers in need.

For 35 years, City Harvest has been rescuing food that would otherwise go to waste and delivering it to our neighbors in need. This year, we will collect 61 million pounds of fresh, nutritious food to help feed the more than 1.2 million New Yorkers struggling to put food on their tables. We’re asking you to stand with us this September to help us feed NYC – one day, one meal, one person at a time.

Almost half of households in New York City don’t earn enough to cover just basic expenses, including food. Many of our neighbors are forced to choose between paying rent and buying groceries. What’s more, proposed cuts to SNAP make these uncertain times for many of our neighbors. Your support this month will help us deliver food to the people who need it most.

Thanks to a generous donor, every dollar donated this month will be matched, up to $35,000. Stand with us this Hunger Action Month. Donate now and double your impact – each dollar helps feed 8 New Yorkers in need.
