What You'll Get

The Issue: Reduced Food Assistance for Kids During Summer

More than 1.5 million New Yorkers currently live in poverty, and 25 percent of New York City children live in food-insecure homes, according to data from the NYC Center for Economic Opportunity from 2008 to 2010. Although many children who live in food-insecure homes have access to meal programs at school during most of the year, during the summer months, many of these children deal with hunger.

The Campaign: Ensure Food Pantries are Well-Stocked

With each $5 donation to this Grassroots campaign, City Harvest can provide food for 20 people as part of its Feed the Kids Food Drive, which helps ensure that food pantries and soup kitchens can meet increased food needs during the summer. Each additional $5 donation will help fund food for 20 more people in need. This year's Feed the Kids Food Drive, which runs from Mother's Day to Father's Day, will provide approximately 160,000 pounds of kid-friendly food to those in need.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.

About 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.
