City Harvest - Hurricane Sandy Updates
November 6, 2012 Update:
Yesterday our facility was open and receiving food at 6:00 am. A total of 10 loads of food were received including bananas, potatoes, beets, yogurt, cabbage and cereal. We expect to receive another 8 loads today including much needed canned good and baby food.
We also started picking up special large donations of prepared food – enough for 200-300 people –from restaurant partners including Le Bernardin, Benchmark, Hecho en Dumbo, Oceana, Victor’s Café and more. These meals will be much appreciated by our agency partners who are seeing increased numbers of people looking for hot meals.
To accommodate the increased volume of food that is coming through our facility, we have rented additional trucks and forklifts as well as hired temporary staff to keep our trucks loaded and moving to where the food is most needed. We now have a total of 21 trucks on the road including 2 tractor trailers. As of today, we are expanding our hours to 10:00 pm which will help us take in even more food.
In addition to food deliveries to 124 of our regular agency partners we made special drops of water and pantry bags of shelf-stable items like peanut butter, soup, cereal and tuna to:
Gowanus Houses, Brooklyn
Haber Houses, Coney Island
NYCHA Houses, Far Rockaway
We are continuously amazed at the generosity of so many people who have stepped forward to offer their time, funds and food to help keep our operations moving. Since last Wednesday we have moved nearly 900,000 pounds of food to those who need it most.
Thank you to everyone who has made that possible!
