Tikkun Olam: Sukkot Apple Drive (through October 5)

Sukkot | Tikkun Olam Apple Drive with City Harvest

Wednesday, September 27 – Thursday, October 5, 2023

In celebration of the harvest festival of Sukkot and to help alleviate hunger in New York City, Tikkun Olam at Temple Emanu-El will be collecting donations of fresh apples to assist City Harvest in helping to distribute fresh produce for their clients.  Donations may be left in the lobbies at 10 East 66th Street and One East 65th Street from Wednesday, September 27 through Thursday, October 5.

City Harvest is New York City’s first and largest food rescue organization. The nonprofit rescues food that would otherwise go to waste and delivers it free of charge to New Yorkers experiencing hunger. Over the past 40 years, City Harvest has rescued and distributed over one billion pounds of food across New York City’s five boroughs for those struggling to put meals on the table.
