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

City Harvest pioneered food rescue in 1982, and this year, will collect 55 million pounds of excess food to help feed the nearly 1.4 million New Yorkers struggling to put meals on their tables. Through relationships with farms, restaurants, grocers and manufacturers, City Harvest collects nutritious food that would otherwise go to waste and deliver it free of charge to 500 soup kitchens, food pantries and other community food programs across New York City’s five boroughs. City Harvest also takes a long-term approach to hunger relief through its Healthy Neighborhoods initiative.
