Many of our neighbors have trouble affording kosher food for themselves and their families. Our annual High Holidays, which runs from mid-August through mid-September, asks New Yorkers to donate nonperishable, kosher foods to make sure no one in our city goes hungry during the High Holidays. Thanks to all of our fellow New Yorkers who donated food! We’re tallying the pounds now, so check back to see how much we collected.
Feed Our Kids
May 14 - June 18, 2017
City Harvest’s annual Feed Our Kids, which ran from Mother’s Day to Father’s Day, asked 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.
Thanks to all of our fellow New Yorkers who donated food, and this year’s sponsors and community partners for making the drive a great success! We’re tallying the pounds now, so check back to see how much we collected.
