MOONACHIE, NJ — Paris Baguette is working with City Harvest, the largest food rescue organization in New York, to combat hunger and food insecurity through daily donations of surplus food from the bakery brand’s NYC locations.
“We are proud to team up with City Harvest to support their mission to fight hunger in New York City by rescuing and delivering fresh, nutritious food to millions of New Yorkers,” said Nick Scaccio, VP of operations at Paris Baguette. “As a neighborhood bakery cafe, we are dedicated to supporting and uplifting the communities we serve, and we believe everyone should have access to delicious and nutritious meals. We look forward to providing daily food donations at our numerous partner cafes to continue to support City Harvest’s critical mission.”
The bakery cafe brand joins an assortment of foodservice establishments in the Big Apple by donating surplus foods such as pastries, sandwiches and produce. City Harvest is set to donate 77 million pounds of food to its Mobile Markets soup kitchens, food pantries and community partners across the city.
“We are thrilled to add several Paris Baguette locations to our growing list of foodservice supporters who help to drive City Harvest’s mission forward every single day through food donations,” said Lesha Ingram, donor relations and supply chain manager at City Harvest. “Our partners play an essential role in helping feed millions of New Yorkers each year, and we are thrilled to welcome Paris Baguette to our roster of fantastic partners across the city.”
This partnership continues Paris Baguette’s philanthropic mission to serve local communities through its Love Baked In program.
