I never thought that I’d hear the words “city” and “harvest” used together as often as I do these days, but now it seems that every city has a farmers market, urban vegetable gardens, and restaurants with hyper-local cuisine. Oddly enough, City Harvest means something slightly different when they talk about harvesting food. They are “a non-profit organization founded in 1982” and “the world’s first and New York City’s only food rescue program.” What does that mean? It means that this year they will “collect 26 million pounds of excess food from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, and farms.” They’re harvesting anything and everything that they can (as long as it’s up to their food safety standards) to feed New York City’s hungry. It’s a brilliant idea, and the organizations longevity proves that it’s working.

Harvest a Job

It’s amazing how much food we waste every day. I remember going on an overnight field trip in 5th grade, and instead of throwing out our food, we had to put in a bucket and weigh it. The table with the least “ort” (food refuse) won. City Harvest obviously doesn’t take leftovers from people’s plates, but they do take food that never gets served like bread that a bakery never sells or items that never get served by a caterer. It makes so much sense, and City Harvest is able to execute the idea on a huge scale. They have 17 trucks operating 365 days a year and work with 38,000 donors. If you’re impressed by City Harvest’s creative approach to battling hunger, then you should think about a job with them. Right now, they’re looking for a Program and Marketing Assistant. The job looks perfect for a new grad, so check out the full description and send a resume/CV and cover letter with salary requirements to if you like what you see. Don’t forget to include Program and Marketing Assistant in the subject line.

One response to “City Harvest”

  1. Randi says:

    City Harvest loves entry level employees. Because they’re fresh, young, eager and enthusiastic, they’re perfect to exploit and work to death; give impossible workloads to without any guidance or encouragement, and then fire 75% of them just before their 3 months probation period is up. Just a warning.
