Eric Ripert on City Harvest

City Harvest is an organization I admire very much for their core mission of feeding hungry New Yorkers.

As a chef and restaurant owner I am lucky to be surrounded by food every day, and so I feel very strongly about giving back and supporting their work. But I am also a supporter and advocate of City Harvest because of their innovative work in hunger prevention and education. They have created grassroots community programs such as the Mobile Market—green market style distribution points where New Yorkers in need can select produce with dignity and learn how to cook with it by visiting chefs.
