The Sylvia Center
Founded with a mission to inspire young people and their families to eat seasonally and healthfully through hands-on after-school programs in the kitchen and on the farm, we are active in co-teaching classes featuring cooking lessons using Mediterranean Diet ingredients and introducing the students to careers in food outside of the kitchen.
In 2017, we were proud to create the Growing Communities of Healthy Eaters Award program that honors the accomplishments of some of the center’s most inspiring students. For more information, please visit Sylvia Center.
Having worked just upstairs from the City Harvest team for years, we saw firsthand the vital work they do each day to end hunger in communities around New York City. Through food rescue and distribution, education and other initiatives, City Harvest keeps food on the tables of those most in need. To date, we’ve donated over 300,000 lbs. of food to their programs.
