City Harvest has always been about New Yorkers taking care of New Yorkers. With one out of five kids in New York City facing hunger, we have the opportunity to step up and take care of our city’s youngest New Yorkers.

It starts with you. Donate the cost of your lunch and join thousands of New Yorkers helping fuel City Harvest's work to rescue and deliver fresh, nutritious food for children and families in our city. Just $15 helps make 60 happy tummies. Get 5 people to donate? You’re making 300 happy tummies. That's how we turn one lunch into a bunch.

Start a team today!

The first 50 teams to raise $500 will receive a $500 match, generously provided by The Cowin Foundation.

Join us and help City Harvest’s Skip Lunch Fight Hunger raise $1.1 million – enough to help feed 50,000 kids for the entire summer. We’ll supply you with tips and tools like posters, stickers and other promotional materials to help your team fight child hunger. The top 25 fundraising teams will be recognized in a full-page Thank You ad, and the top 5 teams will be featured on a specially-branded Skip Lunch Fight Hunger City Harvest food rescue truck for one year!

We've teamed up with our friends at Pret A Manger to support your efforts! Give $45 or more online before May 31 and receive a special thank you voucher from Pret A Manger in June.
