Rangers, City Harvest Team Up for Annual Food Drive

by Staff Writer / New York Rangers

The New York Rangers will be holding a food drive to help City Harvest feed hungry New Yorkers during "Will Work For Food Week."

All fans are encouraged to bring non-perishable cans of food prior to the following Rangers home games at Madison Square Garden:

Sunday, November 23 vs. Ottawa Senators
Sunday, December 7 vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Collection boxes will be set up at The Garden Box Office area to help feed your fellow New Yorkers in a time of need.

Each Week City Harvest helps feed nearly 200,000 women, men and children.

City Harvest is the product of common sense. In 1981, a worker at a soup kitchen noticed that neighboring restaurants were wasting good food every day. Seeing an opportunity to bolster the food supply at the soup kitchen, she gathered volunteers and borrowed cars and vans to transport the food from where it was not needed to where it was needed very much. And City Harvest was born.

City Harvest has distributed more than 100 million pounds of food to a network of more than 800 emergency food programs throughout New York City. The organization now delivers an average of 45,000 pounds of food daily-21 million pounds last year.

But City Harvest's common-sense, cost-effective approach remains unchanged, because by working efficiently we can help the greatest number of people possible. Picking up and delivering food the same day keeps costs down. Currently, our cost to deliver a pound of food is just $.57, making City Harvest a smart, simple solution to ending hunger in New York City.
