Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours from IZZE!

November 22, 2011

It’s that time of year again when the leaves begin to change and fall and the season of giving and spending time with loved ones reminds us how much we have.  We at IZZE are excited that so many of you will be enjoying our juices at your holiday meals and get-togethers.  As a way to say ‘Thank-you’, IZZE NYC has partnered with City Harvest this year to help collect food and donations for many of the city’s neediest and we hope you will join the efforts wherever you may be!

This year, City Harvest will collect more than 30 million pounds of excess food from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, and farms. This food is then delivered free of charge to nearly 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 300,000 hungry New Yorkers find their next meal.

City Harvest also addresses hunger’s underlying causes by supporting affordable access to nutritious food in low-income communities, educating individuals, families, and communities in the prevention of diet-related diseases, channeling a greater amount of local farm food into high-need areas, and enhancing the ability of our agency partners to feed hungry men, women, and children.

IZZE is proud to support City Harvest this year as they host food drives and fundraisers throughout the city. We hope that you can join us in giving something back this holiday season. Please check out www.cityharvest.org to find out ways that you can help.
