Repackathon or Green Market Rescue to Feed NYC Families in Poverty – Spring 2014
We are teaming up with City Harvest in 2014! City Harvest collected 46 million pounds of excess food in 2013 from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, and farms. This food was then delivered free of charge to more than 500 community food programs throughout New York City. City Harvest helps feed the more than one million New Yorkers that face hunger each year.
GNA plans to hosts either a:
Green Market Rescue, whereby nutritious produce will be collected from loaded onto City Harvest trucks, which deliver the food directly to community programs in the five boroughs, OR a
Repackathon, whereby volunteers repackage thousands of pounds of bulk produce into family-sized units for more efficient distribution to our agency partners.
Stay tuned for event date and specifics!
