Feed Our Kids
May 13 - June 17, 2018
City Harvest’s annual Feed Our Kidsruns from Mother’s Day to Father’s Day (May 13 – June 17) and helps provide much-needed food for New York City’s children throughout the summer when access to school meals may become limited. Schools, organizations, companies, and New York City’s Fire and Police Departments come together to collect non-perishable food donations for City Harvest to pick-up and distribute to our network of 500 , and other serving hungry children and their families across the five boroughs.
Last year, the Feed Our Kids food drive collected more than 260,000 pounds of food—enough to feed more than 2,800 kids and their families in New York City for an entire summer.
Special thanks to our 2018 sponsors and community partners:
