Empowering the Work We Do
City Harvest is New York City’s largest food rescue organization, helping to feed the more than 1.5 million New Yorkers who are struggling to put meals on their tables. This year, City Harvest will rescue 111 million pounds of food and deliver it, free of charge, to hundreds of food pantries, soup kitchens and other community partners across the five boroughs. Its programs help food-insecure New Yorkers access nutritious food that fits their needs and desires; increase their partners’ capacity; and strengthen the local food system, building a path to a food-secure future for all New Yorkers.
The Food Bank for New York City works to end hunger by organizing food, information and support for community survival and dignity. The Food Bank For New York City has been working to end food poverty in our five boroughs for over 36 years. As the city’s largest hunger-relief organization, it employs a multifaceted approach centered on helping low-income New Yorkers overcome their circumstances and achieve greater independence.
The Hunger Prevention and Nutrition Assistance Program (HPNAP) is an initiative led by United Way of New York City and funded by the New York State Department of Health. HPNAP supports more than 380 emergency food programs by administering annual food and operations support grants with a purpose of supporting delivery of emergency food to hungry New Yorkers. HPNAP works directly with the community based organizations that are operating food pantries and soup kitchens to build capacity and ensure that as much food as possible is being distributed effectively and efficiently.
West Harlem Development Corporation (WHDC) was born from the need to implement the deliverables and expectations of the May 18, 2009 Community Benefits Agreement (CBA) between Columbia University and West Harlem Local Development Corporation. WHDC functions with the vision of building collaborations and leveraging resources to enhance the lives of the residents of West Harlem beyond the term of the CBA.
Since 2011 and through 2019, WHDC has funded 177 nonprofits for $11.5 million to serve West Harlem/Manhattan Community District 9 (MCD9) residents with services in education, housing, workforce development, arts & culture, and more.
