Volunteer to Lead a Team for a One-Day Anti Hunger Campaign in the SpringThe organization's strategy is to recruit Skip Lunch Fight Hunger teams city wide. Teams work to spread the word and collect funds in support of the cause.
You don't have to make a long term commitment to the cause of anti-hunger activism.
An Affordable Charitable ContributionHere's the "ask:" Would you be willing to skip lunch for a single day, and donate the money instead to help the truly needy?" It's called the Skip Lunch-Fight Hunger Campaign. Ten dollars barely buys a soda and sandwich in Williamsburg or Park Slope. But those same dollars can be used by City Harvest to help feed about forty kids during the summer.
And, as everyone who's ever tried dieting knows, peer support makes a big difference! So collect yourselves in a team, and make a date to not have lunch. In 2011, there were over a dozen Brooklyn employers participating in this public health campaign, including: UncommonGoods, Leaves of Nature Yoga, and Joey Company.
