During this uncertain time, we recognize how important it is for each of us to do our part. We are choosing to do so by donating 15% of sales beginning March 18 to City Harvest, an NYC-based organization committed to rescuing and delivering food to people in need. With food insecurity as a prevalent issue during this crisis, City Harvest distributes food to hungry neighborhoods throughout New York City.
A Note from City Harvest:
"City Harvest is stepping up to rescue and deliver more food to meet the need during this unprecedented time, and we’ll work hard to make sure all children in New York City and their families have enough food. With NYC public schools closed, we know that children may lose access to school meals and families will face greater challenges affording food. 2.5 million working-age New Yorkers were already struggling to make ends meet, and as the devastating economic impact of COVID-19 becomes reality, many more families will be turning to us to feed their families through the duration of this crisis and beyond. We’re already hearing that some soup kitchens and food pantries need to close their doors in light of health concerns, and we know supermarkets are struggling to keep their shelves stocked.
We are committed to responsibly continuing our operations and feeding everyone who is relying on us today, and anyone who may need us tomorrow. With that said, our trucks will continue to be on the road, rescuing and delivering food for New Yorkers in need. Our nine Mobile Markets will maintain their current schedule and will be distributing pre-bagged food in order to operate in accordance with social distancing. For those who would like to helps us during these times, please consider making a financial contribution. Your support will help us distribute more nutritious food to those who need it. Through April 17, our Board of Directors is matching every $1 donated with $2 of their own, ensuring your gift goes 3 times as far. Visit CityHarvest.org for more ways to help."
