CITY HARVEST Mission: City Harvest exists to end hunger in communities throughout New York City. We do this through food rescue and distribution, education, and other practical, innovative solutions.
VOLUNTEERS SAVE FOOD THAT WOULD BETHROWN AWAY BY RESTAURANTS.
CITY HARVEST A group of ordinary citizens became troubled by the large number of fellow New Yorkers who didnt have enough to eat. When they saw that local restaurants were discarding perfectly good food, these volunteers responded by enlisting friends and borrowing cars to transport the leftover food to where it was needed most. This idea led to the creation of City Harvest in 1982. City Harvest has distributed more than 300 million pounds of food to a network of nearly 600 community food programs throughout NYC.

NYC PARKS & RECREATION “We have more than 15,000 flower bulbs to plant in Washington Square Park before winter. We have set up two volunteer days so that you can help us get this project done before the cold weather settles in. The bulbs we plant now will be the first flowers to bloom in the spring and always create a joyful and colorful display. Join your neighbors and bring your friends to do your part for Washington Square Park.”
