City Harvest is the world's first food rescue organization and one of New York City's great not-for-profit institutions. Food rescue refers to the process of safely recovering surplus food from the supply chain (restaurants, grocers, bakeries, and farms) and distributing it to people in need. City Harvest regularly delivers food to 500 soup kitchens, food pantries and other community food programs across New York City, helping feed the nearly 1.4 million people who face hunger each year. Not only does food rescue help ensure that millions of Americans have access to quality meals, it is also key to helping combat food waste.
