Getting around NYC is hard enough as a person, imagine what great lengths our food must travel to end up on our plates. What about excess food? Even in our modern age of planes, trains, and automobiles it's not easy for excess food that would otherwise go to waste to get in the hands of our hungry neighbors who need it most. In fact, nearly 1 in 5 New Yorkers doesn't always know where their next meal is coming from. City Harvest is dedicated to helping feed the more than 1.4 million New Yorkers who face hunger. This year, City Harvest will collect 50 million pounds of excess food from restaurants, grocers, bakeries, manufacturers, and farms, and deliver it free of charge to more than 500 soup kitchens, food pantries and other community food programs across the city.
