The fierce competition will take place at Seamore’s Brookefield Place at 9:00 am. The "Skip Lunch Fight Hunger" campaign was founded in 2002 by former Food & Wine editor Dana Cowin. The campaign encourages people to take the amount of money they would normally spend on lunch and donate it to help City Harvest provide nutritious food to kids in NYC who depend on free school breakfasts and lunches each day–and who struggle to eat healthily once school is out for the summer. Chef Marc Murphy, of Chopped, is this year’s campaign co-chair.
Visit www.cityharvest.org/skiplunch to join or lead a team and make donations to the campaign. These donations will support City Harvest’s quest to rescue 61 million pounds of food that would otherwise go to waste around the city and deliver it to soup kitchens and food pantries across the five boroughs.
