Skip Lunch Fight Hunger is a citywide initiative that asks our neighbors in New York City to donate what they normally spend on lunch to help feed hungry children and their families. Hunger is a year-round problem, but some New Yorkers are actually more likely to lose their access to good food during the summer months: children. While many public schools are open the entire summer to serve free breakfast and lunch to children, they’re not able to replace every missing meal.
For the cost of an average lunch, you can help ensure that every New Yorker has access to good food. With just $10, City Harvest can feed over 43 children.
By collectively bringing together our lunch money on May 11th, we can make a significant impact on hunger in our city. Join Skip Lunch Fight Hunger this year by registering as an individual or a team to raise funds, or by donating to the campaign.
