Looking to Give Back? 

When COVID-19 hit New York City, the New York City Department of Education – the largest school district in the country – stepped up to make sure none of their 1.1 million students and no New Yorker went hungry. To date, 40 million meals have been served – a critical part of helping to fight food insecurity during the COVID-19 crisis. Please consider donating so they can continue to serve an average of 550,000 meals a day. Your gift will help offset the extraordinary expenses that the district is incurring due to this health crisis, and that are not covered by the city, state or federal governments. Funds may also be used to accelerate scratch cooking and preparation of clean, wholesome and simply prepared foods in all schools, while also achieving the elimination of the Harmful 7 categories of ingredients in all of District’s schools.

100% of your donation will be turned into a taxdeductible donation to the Life Time Foundation, all of which will benefit the New York City Department of Education’s food program.
