 ‘Tis the Season for Giving! For nearly thirty years, City Harvest and The Daily News have partnered to host the Daily News Readers Care to Feed the Hungry Canned Food Drive, the largest food drive in New York City. This year, thousands of students across the city will participate in the drive by bringing non-perishable items to school for Kids Can Help Week from December 5th through December 9th. Running a food drive helps City Harvest stock shelves at food pantries and soup kitchens with food for the holiday season.

Most needed items include: canned fruit, canned vegetables, peanut butter (plastic jars), macaroni and cheese (packaged), hot and cold cereal (packaged, family-sized) Note: City Harvest cannot accept: unlabeled or dented cans, any open packaging, products that need to be refrigerated, homemade foods, or expired products.
