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.
Daily News Food Drive
Tuesday, October 25, 2022–Friday, January 6, 2023
This year marks 40 years of City Harvest partnering with the New York Daily News to host the Daily News Food Drive, the largestin New York City. This annual food drive runs throughout the holiday season to provide nutritious food for our neighbors in need. As millions of New Yorkers continue to struggle with rising costs of necessities like food, rent, and gas, the need for food remains high for children, families, and seniors across the five boroughs. Thanks to your help, last year we raised more than 660,000 pounds of food!
