For the seventh year, City Harvest was selected as a Charity Partner for the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon.
This year, our Food Council member Dan Churchill, Executive Chef of Charley St, will lead Team City Harvest as Captain. Under his leadership, our team of 50 runners aims to raise $250,000 — enough to help feed 1 million New Yorkers.
City Harvest is New York City’s largest food rescue organization, helping to feed the nearly 1.2 million New Yorkers who are struggling to put meals on their tables. We will rescue 64 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.
