In celebration of Macaron Day, participating New York City locations are handing out complimentary samples of these tasty treats with a portion of their macaron sales going to benefit City Harvest (www.cityharvest.org). As is the world's first food rescue
organization, dedicated to feeding the
city's hungry men, women, and children. This
year, City-Harvest will collect 28 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.
