City Harvest Presents La Noche Latina
New York, NY

City Harvest pioneered food rescue in 1982 when we saw the abundance of excess food and recognized the practical purpose it could serve in filling the plates of the working mom who had trouble making ends meet at month’s end, the senior in the apartment upstairs living on a fixed income, and the family around the corner coping with a large and unexpected medical bill. Today, nearly 1.3 million New Yorkers struggle to put meals on their tables and City Harvest have scaled up their efforts to fight hunger. City Harvest will collect 59 million pounds of excess food this year and deliver it free of charge to 500 soup kitchens, food pantries and other community food programs across the five boroughs of New York City.
