Feed Our Kids
May 14 - June 18, 2017
City Harvest’s annual Feed Our Kids, which runs from Mother’s Day to Father’s Day, asks New Yorkers to donate kid-friendly, non-perishable items to help provide much-needed food for our city’s children over the summer when access to school meals may become limited. Schools, organizations and companies came together to collect food donations for City Harvest to pick-up and distribute to our network of 500 , , and other that serve hungry children and their families across the five boroughs.
Last year, we collected nearly 300,000 pounds, enough to feed over 14,000 hungry New Yorkers for the entire summer.

At the end of your food drive collection, call City Harvest to schedule a pick-up for donations of 100 pounds or more (estimate 1 can = 1 pound of food). If you collect less than 100 pounds, please drop off the donations at one of the following locations:
