Screen Shot 2015-05-12 at 2.30.46 PMStarting on Mother’s Day this past Sunday, May 10, and through Father’s Day on Sunday, June 21, our New York City Goodwill stores will serve as drop-off centers for the City Harvest Feed the Kids Food Drive.

Last year, we held two very successful food collection drives. We hope you will donate food for hungry New Yorkers again.

What can you donate?

As in past food drives, we will be collecting nonperishable food items. All types of canned and packaged goods are welcome. This helps keep your collection site insect-free and ensures that all food collected is safe for consumption.

The most needed foods are:

  • canned fruit
  • canned vegetables
  • peanut butter (plastic jars)
  • mac and cheese (packaged)
  • hot and cold cereal (packaged, family-sized)

The following donations will feed a family of four for a day:

  • Breakfast: Box of cereal or oatmeal; dried fruit; powdered milk; 100% fruit juice.
  • Lunch: Tuna, peanut butter, or soup; canned vegetables; canned fruit.
  • Dinner: Any canned protein (i.e. beef stew, chicken), or meat sauce; macaroni & cheese, pasta or rice; canned fruit or applesauce.
    No glass, please, with the exception of baby food!

City Harvest collects food exclusively, but Goodwill accepts clothes and household goods. This is a list of items we take and don’t take.

Need help finding food? Call the Hunger Hotline (866) 888-8777
