As Thanksgiving approaches, many families across the United States will be crowding around their tables to enjoy the comforts of a warm meal with loved ones. However, according to this report from Feeding America, nearly 1 million New Yorkers will rely on emergency food this year, including more than 1 in 5 children who live in families who don’t always know where their next meal is coming from. 😦
With that being said, if you’re looking to give back to those who were greatly impacted by Super Storm Sandy and the current Winter Storm Athena, here’s a way you can do just that on Groupon! For every $10 raised by this Grassroots campaign, City Harvest will help provide a healthy meal for 40 hungry New York residents this Thanksgiving.
Knowing they will have a meal available can help make the holidays a less stressful time for families who are food insecure. This year, City Harvest aims to collect more than 42 million pounds of produce and food from restaurants, grocers, farms, and manufacturers, which would otherwise go to waste. Head on over here to donate to this great cause and help those in need.
100% of donations go directly to City Harvest. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide full name at checkout.
