UncommonGoods and New York-based food rescue organization City Harvest proudly present the Plate with PurposeTM. Chosen from over 90 entries in the Harvest Plate Design Challenge, graphic designer Michael White's iconic design garnered the community vote for uniquely capturing City Harvest's generosity of spirit. White's compassionate cityscape reminds us that food is essential--everyone deserves a helping with heart.
Each plate is hand-cut from pre-consumer, post-industrial recycled glass and hand-screened with color. Handmade in Pennsylvania.
$5 from every purchase of this plate directly benefits City Harvest. Now serving New York City for more than 30 years, City Harvest is the world's first food rescue organization, dedicated to feeding the city's hungry men, women, and children. This year, City Harvest will collect 46 million pounds of excess food from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, and farms. This food is then delivered free of charge to some 400 community food programs throughout New York City by a fleet of trucks and bikes. City Harvest helps feed the more than one million New Yorkers that face hunger each year.
