The TCS New York City Marathon represents the best of New York’s spirit—when all New Yorkers come together to support each other and cheer on their neighbors. Though we are not able to be together in person this year, the camaraderie is needed now more than ever.
As an eight-time Charity Partner of the TCS New York City Marathon, we are proud to announce Team City Harvest: Virtual Marathon & Running Club, a virtual fundraising team for New Yorkers helping New Yorkers. We have set an ambitious team fundraising goal of $275,000—enough to help feed nearly 1 million New Yorkers for a day! At a time when more and more New Yorkers may not know where their next meal will come from, your help is vital.
City Harvest is New York City’s largest food rescue organization, helping to feed the nearly 1.6 million New Yorkers who are struggling to put meals on their tables. We will rescue 144 million pounds of food this year and deliver it, free of charge, to hundreds of food pantries, soup kitchens and other community partners across the five boroughs. Our programs help food-insecure New Yorkers access nutritious food that fits their needs and desires; increase our partners’ capacity; and strengthen the local food system, building a path to a food-secure future for all New Yorkers.
