If you're friends with Emily, if you're friends with David, and/or if you've been to Emily's annual Latke-Fest Holiday Party in the past, then you know that we're both in a love affair with food.
So this year, we've decided to dedicate one of our foodiest traditions (feeding our friends and loved ones during the winter holiays), to an organization that helps to feed so many others, while working to prevent food waste.
If you would have normally spent $10 on a bottle of wine for Latke-Fest, let us get the wine and contribute that $10 here. If you feel like contributing more, do that too.
Please read below for information about City Harvest.

Thirty-five years ago, City Harvest pioneered food rescue when a handful of New Yorkers stepped up to help our neighbors in need. Since then, they have rescued and delivered over 600 million pounds of food to feed New York City.
Today, more than 1.2 million New Yorkers, including one in five children, struggle to put meals on their tables. This year, City Harvest will collect 61 million pounds of excess food this year and deliver it free of charge to hundreds of soup kitchens, food pantries and other community food programs across the five boroughs. By redirecting this nutritious food from supermarkets, manufacturers, farmers markets, and restaurants to our neighbors in need, we can support our local communities and reduce the environmental impact of food that would otherwise go to waste.
Please help me make sure that good food doesn't go to waste when so many people are hungry by donating to my campaign. Together, we can make a difference on day, one meal, and one person at a time.
Every $1 donated helps City Harvest rescue and deliver four 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.
