This week in the office we are participating in City Harvest's "Skip Lunch, Fight Hunger" initiative. The program asks people to donate the amount of money they would typically spend on one lunch to help New York's hungry children. It's pretty remarkable how many can be touched by a single donation:
· $10 helps feed 40 children
· $20 helps feed 10 children for a week
· $50 helps feed 6 children for a month
City Harvest has been serving the less fortunate in New York City for over 30 years. This year, they'll collect over 42 million pounds of excess food which is redistributed to approximately 600 community food programs.
