Virtual Food Drives

If Music Be the Food NYC

Welcome to “If Music Be the Food…” NYC’s virtual food drive to benefit City Harvest! IMBTF NYC brings professional and student musicians together to raise awareness and support for the hungry in New York City through the sharing of great music. Our first concert will take place on Friday, March 16, 2018 at 7:30 PM at the Tenri Cultural Institute, 43A West 13th Street, New York, NY 10011. Students and faculty from the Juilliard School and the Manhattan School of Music, members of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, and alumni of the Perlman Music Program will join together in a beautiful program of Mendelssohn and Brahms. You may donate directly here via this website at any time, or bring your monetary donations or non-perishable food items for City Harvest to the concert on March 16th. We hope to see you there! For more information please visit or visit our facebook page.

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
