New Home in Sunset Park, Brooklyn

City Harvest’s New Home in Sunset Park, Brooklyn

City Harvest helped start the food rescue movement in 1982 when a group of New Yorkers saw that New York City had an abundance of excess food, while so many of its residents were struggling to feed themselves and their families.

Since then, City Harvest has stepped up to help feed our neighbors in need through some of our city’s most challenging times. With the partnership of our fellow New Yorkers, we have become one of the most effective and efficient food rescue organizations in the world, rescuing and delivering millions of pounds of nutritious food each year to help feed our neighbors.

In early 2022, City Harvest moved our operations to Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Our new food rescue and delivery hub is called the Cohen Community Food Rescue Center, in recognition of a significant leadership donation from the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation. We are delighted to partner with three leading architecture firms, Ennead Architects, Rockwell Group, and Ware Malcomb, to renovate the historic building. We are excited to join the dynamic Sunset Park community and thrilled with the possibilities our new home will bring to help feed the many New Yorkers who are depending on us today and in the decades to come.
