Did you know that more than half of the food City Harvest rescues and delivers is fresh fruits and vegetables? If you’re looking for an alternative to a traditional canned, you can help donate fresh produce by running a #GiveHealthy food drive. The #GiveHealthy platform allows you to purchase food items directly for City Harvest.
