$150 for General Admission to Charitable Summer in the City Event on June 19
From 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Wednesday, June 19, crowds will descend on the Metropolitan Pavilion to show their support for City Harvest—an organization committed to feeding hungry New Yorkers throughout the city's five boroughs. This Summer in the City event will feature tasting plates from more than 30 New York chefs and restaurants; wine, cocktails, and beer from local breweries; and live musical performances by Rakiem Walker Project and Howie Day. Attendees will also have a chance to win culinary, travel, and entertainment prizes through a raffle and silent auction.
All proceeds from general admission and the evening's other fundraising efforts will help City Harvest achieve its goal of collecting and distributing 42 million pounds of food this year.
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 55 million pounds of excess food that would otherwise go to waste and will deliver it to soup kitchens and food pantries that serve New Yorkers like these. City Harvest gathers good food from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, and farms, and delivers it using a fleet of trucks and bikes. 500 community programs throughout the five boroughs—such as The Bowery Mission and Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen —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 1.4 million New Yorkers who may face hunger every year.
