The City Harvest Project

Chef  Metal and City Harvest have joined forces to help put much needed food into the hands of NYC's hungry! Read below for the details on our donation matching program and our exclusive line of City Harvest inspired wristbands that make an even bigger impact upon the food rescue movement! 



We couldn't be more excited to announce that our partner NicWhims Jewelry has created a City Harvest inspired Custom Fashion Jewelry Collection to help support our City Harvest Project!!! Nic's creative, hand made designs are a great way to support City Harvest NYC with fashion-forward flair!

Neighbor Helping Neighbor... 


Fact: Every $1 donated to City Harvest helps rescue and deliver fresh, healthy food for four New Yorkers for a day. That's a lot of bang for a buck and is why Chef Metal wants that dollar to go even further and make an even BIGGER bang!

As Chefs, we hate to see food waste and what we hate even more is knowing that there are hungry people out there that can't get the nutritious food they need, all the while knowing there is surplus food out there to be had everyday.  Recognizing this, we set out to find a charity partner who would help align our new business model with our core values of driving culinary relief projects to help the community.

With that, we are proud to announce that Chef Metal has partnered with City Harvest, the largest food rescue organization in New York City, to do our part in helping rescue and distribute fresh food to those struggling to put healthy meals on their tables. Amazingly, City Harvest will rescue 66 million pounds of food this year alone and deliver it, free of charge, to hundreds of food pantries, soup kitchens and other community partners across the five boroughs. Our partnership program with City Harvest is intended to help food-insecure New Yorkers gain access to the nutritious food they need. Whether through donation matching or revenue sharing, our donation dollars will help City Harvest increase their throughput capacity, strengthen the local food system and help build a path towards a food-secure future for all New Yorkers.

Here's how you can join our effort...

For a $1 donation, have the City Harvest logo hand hammered into your custom wristband design. To make your donation even more valuable, Chef Metal will match that donation and send $2 directly to City Harvest.  


Purchase one of our custom City Harvest inspired wristband designs and 100% of the net proceeds will be donated directly to City Harvest.

Whichever option you choose, know that through your support of Chef Metal, you will also be supporting a much greater cause...the cause to eliminate hunger and feed those New Yorkers who are most in need.

So on behalf of Chef Metal and The City Harvest Project, we thank you for your generous support.
