New York, NY (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
The SDDCO Group (SDDCO), provider of outsourced accounting and compliance services, volunteered for New York’s City Harvest—the “world’s first food rescue organization”—dedicated to feeding the city’s hungry for 30 years.
On a crisp October evening, just days before Halloween, a hardy troupe of SDDCO employees collected nearly 6,000 pounds of produce and other food, setting a new record for a Friday night collection at New York's Union Square, according to Alroy Lam, City Harvest Greenmarket Coordinator.
As well as financially sponsoring this event, SDDCO manned the work detail, collecting and bagging as a firm the food deemed excess by extremely generous vendors at Manhattan's Greenmarket. Migliorelli Farm was by far the largest contributor that night, donating a veritable feast of vegetables.
In years past, SDDCO simply sent a check. While they felt that was of value to the community, this fall and last, the buttoned down professionals of SDDCO also donned blue jeans and work gloves to give hands-on assistance to the cause—hauling bags of food into massive barrels to stock a City Harvest delivery truck.
SDDCO's event mission was to “rescue” as much donated excess as possible to help support City Harvest recipients, emergency food programs including soup kitchens, homeless shelters, AIDS care providers, senior homes, and children's daycare centers throughout the boroughs.
City Harvest feeds more than one million New Yorkers who face hunger each year.
