Over the holiday season, thousands of visitors descend on New York City, to skate at Rockefeller Center, and watch the ball drop in Times Square. The Food Bank of NYC, which provides food to 1 in 5 New Yorkers, partners with local businesses to “Go Orange” — the color of hunger awareness — to benefit the Food Bank everywhere from local supermarkets, Barneys and even atop the Empire State Building. Do some good while you have some fun—check out these events below and visit foodbanknyc.org for more!
