Cycling Network International is proud to produce this Benefit Ride for CityHarvest.
Today, CityHarvest is New York City’s largest food rescue organization, helping to feed the more than 1.5 million New Yorkers who are struggling to put meals on their tables. They will rescue 109 million pounds of food this year and deliver it, free of charge, to hundreds of food pantries, soup kitchens, and other community partners across the five boroughs. Their programs help food-insecure New Yorkers access nutritious food that fits their needs and desires; increase our partners’ capacity; and strengthen the local food system, building a path to a food-secure future for all New Yorkers.
Funds raised will benefit CityHarvest, where every dollar helps rescue 2 pounds of food that feeds 2 Hungry New Yorkers for a day and delivers it to soup kitchens, food pantries, and other community food programs across the five boroughs.
- City Harvest is New York City’s largest food rescue organization. Through relationships with farms, grocers, restaurants, and manufacturers, City Harvest collects nutritious food that would otherwise go to waste.
- City Harvest delivers this food free of charge to our network of hundreds of soup kitchens, food pantries, and other community food programs across the five boroughs, using a fleet of 26 trucks that are on the road seven days a week.
- City Harvest delivers an average of nearly 300,000 pounds of food daily.
- This year, City Harvest will rescue 109 million pounds of nutritious food, more than half of which will be fresh produce.
Hunger in NYC
- More than 1.5 million New Yorkers will face hunger this year, including more than one in four New York City children.
- Prior to the COVID-19 crisis, there were 1.6 million New Yorkers living in poverty – which is nearly 20% of all New Yorkers.
- Almost half of all households in New York City—over 2.5 million men, women, and children—lack the income needed to cover basic necessities like
food, housing, transportation, and childcare.
