FreshDirect donates surpluss food during NYC blizzardImpassable roads following New York City’s near record snowfall shut down many businesses. Fortunately, the owners of FreshDirect, a grocery delivery service, took action to donate the 72,000 pounds that would otherwise have gone to waste.

The food rescue organization City Harvest posted photos showing 1,000 pounds being dropped off at Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen in Chelsea, where 1,250 hungry New Yorkers eat lunch every day.
