Fight Holiday Hunger in NYC with ‘Giving’ Guide from City Harvest
Fight Holiday Hunger in NYC with ‘Giving’ Guide from City Harvest. As the holiday season approaches, many will leave Thanksgiving dinner early to take advantage of Black Friday sales, host Christmas parties worth hundreds of dollars, or yearn for lavish gifts like cell phones, tablets and smart watches. However, the most rewarding gift of all is often overlooked – gift of giving.
Amid a blizzard of commercial holiday gift guides, City Harvest, New York’s largest food rescue organization, is redeeming the true meaning of the holiday season with fun, engaging ways to give back:
- Start A Virtual Food Drive
Help rescue fresh produce and deliver it to those in need by running a Virtual Food Drive. Simply create an online fundraiser for a holiday giving campaign by setting a fundraising goal, customizing your fundraising page, and sharing it with your community via email and social media. Every $100 you raise helps feed 370 people for a day!
- Repack on the Road Supported by Amazon
You can help feed hundreds of children in New York City with Repack on the Road, supported by Amazon®. City Harvest will come to whatever location is most convenient for your group, provide all the packing supplies and food, organize and run the event, and deliver the snack packs to children around New York City. In just one and half hours, you and your co-workers can help feed hundreds of children in our city!
- Feed NYC While You Shop and Dine Out
Support City Harvest while you shop for the holidays and dine out around NYC! Visit the Shop for City Harvest page where you’ll see all the ways your purchases can help fuel City Harvest’s food rescue work. Le Bernardin’s exclusive City Harvest Lunch Menu also offers a three-course prix-fixe option and will donate $5 to City Harvest whenever someone orders the prix-fixe menu.
- Run A Food Drive
New Yorkers can help feed their neighbors by organizing food drives in their schools, apartment buildings, businesses, and places of worship. If more than 100 pounds of food is collected, City Harvest will come and pick-up the food at your desired location.
