TAP-NY x City Harvest 2022 Holiday Food Drive (Virtual)

November 23

This holiday season, Taiwanese American Professionals is hosting a virtual food drive! You can purchase a basket of delicious and healthy groceries to help the fight to end hunger. The drive will run from November 3 through November 23. Your thoughtfulness is so appreciated – every contribution helps!

Food insecurity in New York City has surged over 30% after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Feeding America, nearly 1.5 million New Yorkers – including one in four children – experience food insecurity. Visits to New York City food pantries and food kitchens are up almost 70% in 2022 compared to 2019. Learn more about hunger in NYC (and how you can help!) here.
