Founded in 1982, City Harvest is dedicated to feeding New York City’s hungry men, women and children by collecting excess food from restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, farms and other food industry sources. The food is then delivered free of charge to more than 600 community food programs throughout New York City using a fleet of trucks and bikes as well as volunteers on foot. Each week, City Harvest helps over 260,000 hungry New Yorkers find their next meal, with over 23 million pounds of food now collected annually.

“Z100′s Zootopia is all about the listeners. Every year, we work with some of the biggest artists to come together for a few hours and perform their biggest hit songs live. This year’s line-up is a true reflection of the most popular songs on Z100 right now,” said Sharon Dastur, Program Director for Z100. “We’re excited to be partnering with such a great organization like City Harvest. With the current economy, many families face the tough challenge of putting food on their table, and as the official charity partner of the show, it gives the listeners and the station a great opportunity to give back to the community.”

“City Harvest is pleased to be the chosen charity partner for Z100′s Zootopia. We’re thankful for funds and food raised through the event itself as well as Z100′s help in heightening awareness about the growing problem of hunger in our city,” said Jilly Stephens, Executive Director of City Harvest. “With more of our neighbors in need of food during these hard times, we hope that Z100 listeners will take action to help City Harvest feed them.”
