About The Initiative

 
 

The can, so simple in its construction, a beautiful symbol for the promise contained within: food. At Donate the Can we’ve co-opted that symbolism, turning art of our favorite cylinder into actual donations for people in need.


About our partner

 
 

City Harvest pioneered food rescue in 1982 and, this year, will collect 59 million pounds of excess food to help feed the nearly 1.3 million New Yorkers struggling to put meals on their tables. To learn more about food rescue, Healthy Neighborhoods and fighting hunger in New York City, visit cityharvest.org.


It's simple,
