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 members Michael Chernow, Founder of Seamore’s and Co-Founder of the Meatball Shop, and Dan Churchill, Executive Chef of Charley St, are coming together to co-captain Team City Harvest. Under their 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 more than 1.2 million New Yorkers who are struggling to put meals on their tables. We will rescue 61 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.
