1 in 4, or ~500,000 New York City kids are experiencing food insecurity this holiday season. Even before COVID-19, New York City’s most marginalized communities were facing a profound hunger crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the problem.
I’m raising money for City Harvest. Since 1982, City Harvest has been committed to feeding hungry families citywide. This year, City Harvest will feed 1.5 million New Yorkers. How? City Harvest recovers excess food and distributes it to food pantries, soup kitchens, schools, and community centers across the five boroughs.
Please help me combat the problem! If we reach or exceed our goal, all who donate will receive a video of me and Syd polar bear plunging into the Atlantic Ocean on 12/26!
