From May 14-18, Organic participated in City Harvest’s annual “Skip Lunch, Fight Hunger” initiative. This cross-office initiative asked Organics to donate what they would normally spend on lunch to help feed hungry children.
More than 1.7 million New Yorkers currently live in poverty, struggling to afford basic necessities such as rent and medical care and put food on their tables. City Harvest, New York’s only food rescue organization, provides a wonderful opportunity to make a difference in the lives of New York’s most vulnerable population: its children.
Organics raised over $420, which will help provide a meal to over 1554 kids, or will feed 50 kids for an entire month!
