NYC’s restaurant community is rallying around City Harvest—New York's largest food rescue organization—to help its 2019 NYC Marathon team raise $250,000—enough to help feed 1 million New Yorkers for a day.

City Harvest Food Council member Dan Churchill, Executive Chef of Charley St, will captain City Harvest’s 2019 NYC Marathon team of 50 runners. The 2019 TCS New York City Marathon will be held on Sunday, November 3rd.

In addition to Dan Churchill, several other of City Harvest's Food Council members and supporters such as Nate Adler, Michael Chernow, Markus Glocker, and Ed McFarland are donating a portion of proceeds from drinks and bites from NYC’s hottest restaurants throughout the month of October and some through November to help team City Harvest reach its fundraising goal. Some of these chefs and restaurateurs are not only fundraising with the team but also running on behalf of the organization!
