About City Harvest
City Harvest (cityharvest.org) is a charitable organization that was founded in 1982, to meet the nutritional needs of food-insecure New Yorkers. A group of New York residents saw that the city had a surplus of food waste, despite the fact that many New Yorkers were struggling to afford meals. Thanks to 2,000 generous food donors, volunteers and employees work with restaurants, grocery stores, food pantries, soup kitchens and more to direct surplus food to those who need it most. City Harvest is the largest food rescue organization currently operating in New York City, and has rescued over 100 million pounds of food in 2021 alone.
On average City Harvest will move 300,000 pounds of food each day, and has delivered more than 950 million pounds of food since their inception in 1982. In 1999 City Harvest even began a kosher food rescue program, addressing the nutrition needs of more than 500,000 Jewish New Yorkers living at or below the poverty line.
