At the end of the month, I have the pleasure of another birthday. This year I figure it would be nice to share the "cake" with those who don't have enough to eat. Please make a donation to my favorite charity: City Harvest.
More than 1.7 million New Yorkers currently live in poverty, struggling to afford basic necessities such as rent and medical care and put food on their tables.
City Harvest helps feed the more than one million people who face hunger each year.
We rescue more than 115,000 pounds of food each day.
We regularly give food to nearly 600 community programs.
It costs City Harvest just 25 cents to rescue and deliver a pound of food.
In our first month, City Harvest served 55 community food programs in New York City. Today we help feed people at nearly 600 programs. Our goal is to grow our operations to address the demand for emergency food.
