Truck or Treat for City Harvest
It might sound scary, but nearly 24% of New York City kids don't always know where their next meal is coming from. Encourage kids in your community to collect coins as an easy way to make an impact on hunger. City Harvest provides collection boxes featuring City Harvest trucks and other materials to make this a fun and engaging activity. Sign up and request collection boxes for your school or organization.
Reasons to Participate:
- Food insecurity is a serious issue in New York City. Nearly 1 in 4 children do not always know where their next meal will come from.
- Truck or Treat educates children about hunger. And gives them the opportunity to make an impact right here in our city.
- Every donation makes a difference. Just 26 cents helps rescue and deliver a pound of food for a hungry child in New York City!
In 2013, over 50 schools and organizations participated in Truck or Treat, raising over $37,000—enough to help feed over 50,000 hungry families in New York City!
Join us for Truck or Treat this October. Together we can make an even bigger impact on hunger in New York City. Sign up and request collection boxes for your school or organization. Email [email protected] if you have any questions!
