Supported Charities

NYC is the food capital of the world! With new restaurants opening and closing all the time, we can quickly forget about food and water shortages not only in third world countries, but within the United States and in NYC itself. Because NYC is such a food and cultural hub, it is also a perfect place to start giving back.

Below are some charities that I support which focus on giving food back to communities within NY and around the world. I hope you will choose to help them out.

 

City Harvest

“City Harvest exists to end hunger in communities throughout New York City. We do this through food rescue and distribution, education, and other practical, innovative solutions.”

City Harvest is a great organization that focuses on using all of the vast amounts of food wasted by the thousands of restaurants. The excess food is redirected to the local community in need.

“The No Kid Hungry campaign has taken major steps to end child hunger in America, including state and city-based campaigns in all 50 states.”

The organization connects children in need to food near where their homes. NYC is home to many partners in the organization.
