City Harvest For Christmas
Rather than fight through hordes of shoppers in search of the perfect last-minute holiday gifts for friends and family, I've decided to make use of City Harvest's holiday cards. Each year City Harvest collects over 25 million pounds of excess food from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, and farms. The food is then delivered to 600 community food programs throughout New York. The inside of each card contains a greeting such as "Warm Wishes For A Happy Holiday Season" or "Wishing You Health And Happiness In The New Year", and informs the recipient "[a] gift has been made to City Harvest in [their] honor to help feed New Yorkers during the holidays and all year long."
