  • 7. VOLUNTEERS SAVE FOOD THAT WOULD BETHROWN AWAY BY RESTAURANTS.
  • 8. 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.
