NEW YORK – Guggenheim employees raised $70,000 for City Harvest’s Skip Lunch Fight Hunger Campaign, an initiative to feed 45,000 hungry NYC children and their families during the summer months. The contributions landed Guggenheim in second place among the more than 200 companies that participated.
City Harvest met its fundraising goal of $1 million in 2015, enough for the food rescue organization to help feed more than 45,000 hungry children and their families for the summer. Across its programs, City Harvest will collect 55 million pounds of excess food this year from restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, and farms, and deliver it free of charge to 500 community food programs across the city.
