Patrick Henry Virtual Food Drive

Virtual Food Drive 2017



Help fight hunger in New York City by donating to my Virtual Food Drive! Nearly 1.3 million New Yorkers are facing hunger. That's 1 out of every 5 people in our city. You can make a difference by supporting City Harvest.

City Harvest works right here in New York City, rescuing good food that would otherwise go to waste – this year it will be 59 million pounds of food – and delivering it free of charge to soup kitchens, food pantries and other community food programs across the city. Every $1 donated helps City Harvest rescue and deliver 4 pounds of good food. By donating, you’ll help keep City Harvest’s trucks on the road and filled with nutritious food for our neighbors in need. 

• $10 helps feed 40 people

• $20 helps feed 11 people for a week

• $50 helps feed 6 people for an entire month
