Weekend Meals for Homebound Elderly Veterans
City Harvest is New York City’s largest food rescue organization, helping to feed the more than 1.6 million New Yorkers who are struggling to put meals on their tables. City Harvest rescues millions of pounds of food and delivers it, free of charge, to hundreds of food pantries, soup kitchens and other community partners across the five boroughs. Their programs help veterans and other food-insecure New Yorkers access nutritious food that fits their needs and desires; increase their partners’ capacity; and strengthen the local food system, building a path to a food-secure future for all New Yorkers. This BWF award will support City Harvest’s ability to provide over 600,000 meals to individuals and families through their network of 400 food bank, soup pantry, and other community partners across the five boroughs of New York City.
