This year, City Harvest will collect 23 million pounds of excess food from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers and farms. This food is then delivered free of charge to more than 600 community food programs throughout New York City.

The food drive is sponsored by the Office of the Provost and Dean of the College, Department of Health and Behavior Studies, Office of Diversity and Community, Office of Residential Services, Student Senate, and the Rita Gold Early Childhood Center.
