City Harvest’s Feed the Kids food drive, held at PS 84 until June 17th, helps provide much-needed food for New York City's children through the summer months, when access to school meals may be limited.
More than 1.5 million New Yorkers currently live in poverty, with 25% of New York City children living in food insecure homes. Last year's drive raised more than 155,000 pounds of kid-friendly food, which City Harvest delivered to nearly 600 emergency food programs in all five boroughs to help feed children and their families throughout the summer.
Most-needed items include: canned fruit, canned vegetables, peanut butter (plastic jars), macaroni and cheese (packaged), and hot and cold cereal (packaged, family-sized).
