In the aftermath of Sandy, it didn’t take us long here at No One Without to realize it was time for us to take action. Giving is not what we do for a profession, it’s who we are. We decided to search diligently for an organization that does work on the ground in New York on a regular basis that was doing hurricane relief work as well. We wanted a group that knew where to go and who needed help the most.
By chance, from a random email, we found City Harvest. www.cityharvest.org We were drawn to the work that they do and knew that they should be the partner, should they accept the invitation. Thankfully, our friends at City Harvest were thrilled to take our call!
$5 will feed 20 people that are hungry. Your purchase from No One Without will donate $5 to City Harvest for Hurricane Sandy victims who are hungry and in need.
City Harvest has been serving the hungry men, women and children in New York City for 30 years and is the world’s first food rescue organization. In addition to daily deliveries to soup kitchens and and food pantries across five boroughs, City Harvest is making additional food drop offs in the hard hit areas of Staten Island, Coney Island and Red Hook in Brooklyn, and Breezy Point and Rockaway in Queens.
The City Harvest Trucks were damaged in the flooding, they took a loss. However, they refused to just accept defeat. They rented trucks and continued to move. Since the storm, they have given over 1 million pounds of food. This year, City Harvest will collect more than 42 million pounds of excess food from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers and farms. The food is delivered free of charge to some 600 community food programs across the city by a fleet of bikes and trucks.
