BENEFITING: City Harvest, Inc.
ORGANIZER: City Harvest, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
We are running the NYC Marathon to raise money and awareness for City Harvest, a charity dedicated to helping feed the nearly 1.4 million New Yorkers facing hunger.
This year alone, City Harvest will collect 55 million pounds of excess food from restaurants, grocers, bakeries, manufacturers, and farms, and deliver it free of charge to 500 community food programs across NYC. City Harvest partners with residents, local organizations, and businesses through Healthy Neighborhoods programs which increase the availability of affordable fruits and vegetables in low-income communities and provide the nutrition education and resources to maintain a wholesome, food-secure diet. And they’ve been doing it since 1982!
Please help make a difference and consider donating to this worthy cause with us. You can contribute thru this website or if you’d like to donate stock, please contact us and we’ll tell you how.
We hope you’ll watch the runners on November 6th and cheer extra loudly whenever you see someone wearing the green Team City Harvest logo as they tirelessly strive to “outrun hunger!”
