The Issue: Families Living with Food Insecurity

As the holidays approach, families across the United States will be crowding around their tables to enjoy the comforts of a warm meal with loved ones. But according to the latest data from Feeding America, more than 1 million New Yorkers experience food insecurity every year, including more than 1 in 5 children.

The Campaign: Distributing Holiday Meals

For every $10 raised by this Grassroots campaign, City Harvest can help provide a healthy meal for more than 40 hungry New York residents this holiday season. Knowing they will have a meal available can help make the holidays a less stressful time for families who are food insecure. This year, City Harvest aims to collect 46 million pounds of produce and food from restaurants, grocers, farms, and manufacturers, which would otherwise go to waste. Each $10 donation will be matched by a $20 donation from FJC, A Foundation of Donor Advised Funds, up to $37,500.

City Harvest

An elderly man without access to fresh food, a child whose stomach growls during school, and an unemployed mother all face the same challenge—not knowing where their next meal will come from. This is where City Harvest steps in. This year, City Harvest will collect 50 million pounds of excess food and deliver it to New Yorkers like these. City Harvest gathers good food from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, and farms, using a fleet of trucks and bikes to deliver it to distribution points. More than 500 community programs throughout the five boroughs—such as Volunteers of America and St. Luke's Lutheran Church—ensure the food reaches the people who need it most, free of charge. For City Harvest, each pound of food costs just 26 cents to deliver, making it an affordable, efficient way to help feed the nearly 2 million New Yorkers who face hunger every year.

In a Nutshell
