Food Bank For NYC To Receive Nearly 40,000 Pounds Of Donated Pet Food In Harlem

August 11, 2017

In an effort to keep families together in hard times, PetSmart’s Buy a Bag, Give a Meal program is donating nearly 40,000 pounds of pet food — about 190,000 pet food meals — to Food Bank For New York City (Food Bank). This will be the first of three 53-foot long semi truckloads donated to Food Bank into 2018. In all, Food Bank will receive nearly 120,000 pounds of food, marking the largest donation of pet food since the launch of Food Bank’s first pet food distribution program in 2011.

On Tuesday, August 15, 2017, 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., about 8,000 pounds of food will arrive at Food Bank’s Community Kitchen & Food Pantry, where it will be unloaded by a local PetSmart store team and distributed to Food Bank clients and their furry family members. The remaining food will be distributed throughout Food Bank’s network of food pantries citywide.

Only pet parents who are registered pantry clients will be able to receive the free pet food. This distribution is not open to the general public.
