City Harvest, Inc. Overview
City Harvest strategically focuses our resources on low-income communities where affordable, healthy food is not readily accessible and where residents often suffer from high rates of diet-related diseases like diabetes and obesity. Our Healthy Neighborhoods program envisions communities where nutritious food like fresh produce is available, affordable, and in high demand. We have identified communities with high rates of hunger and poverty for additional support—the South Bronx, the North Shore of Staten Island, and Bed-Stuy in Brooklyn. By providing additional free fresh food and nutrition education, and by working closely with local residents, organizations, and community leaders to improve access to and demand for nutritious food, we are creating a model of a healthy, food secure neighborhood.
Agency Capacity Expansion
Many of the agencies City Harvest serves feed people every day on hunger’s front lines but have few operational resources and struggle to stay afloat. They often face fundamental business challenges in data and financial management, customer service, and fundraising that prevent them from fully meeting the needs of their communities. These challenges can be difficult if not impossible to confront without assistance. Through our Agency Capacity Expansion program, we work with selected programs to strengthen their overall ability to serve hungry New Yorkers, making it possible for them to enhance their food services and, potentially, other social services that help clients transition from needing emergency food.
Kosher Community Project
City Harvest strives to improve the quality of life among low-income kosher observant seniors, immigrants, children, and families facing hunger through increased access to a wider variety of kosher food, while uncovering long-term solutions to hunger in communities with special food needs in New York City.
