City Harvest - Program support - Stavros Niarchos Foundation

City Harvest

Program support
To support the expansion of the Healthy Neighborhoods program, which is a comprehensive approach aiming to provide targeted low-income communities with healthy food education and access to affordable food options.    
Established in 1982, City Harvest works to end hunger throughout New York City through food rescue and distribution, education, and other practical and innovative solutions. City Harvest partners with restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, and farms to collect excess food and deliver it, free-of-charge, to community food programs throughout New York City using a fleet of trucks and bikes. City Harvest also addresses hunger’s underlying causes by supporting affordable access to nutritious food in low-income communities; educating individuals, families, and communities in the prevention of diet-related diseases; channeling a greater amount of local farm food into high-need areas; and enhancing the ability of its agency partners to feed hungry men, women, and children.
