Day of Service: NYU GPH X City Harvest
The New York University College of Global Public Health (GPH) has a bold vision to significantly improve the health of populations by pioneering solutions that advance health equity around the world, today and tomorrow. That vision reflects a core belief that global health is not merely a field of study, area of research, or a career, but a goal that will change the world.
To uphold this belief, GPH has launched the new Change the Imbalance Initiative to encourage students, faculty, and staff to build upon research and advocacy by engaging directly with our community through volunteering time or donations. Hence forth, our college will be supplementing major events with opportunities to give back, learn, and raise awareness of various public health issues.
On Tuesday, March 5, GPH will be partnering with City Harvest to provide students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to build and distribute snack packs to children throughout NYC. This event will lead up to our annual Zero Hunger Cooking Challenge, an event that aims to address the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #2: Zero Hunger by developing culturally-appropriate healthy menus for target populations.
We need your help to gather the necessary materials to construct an eco-friendly and nut-free snack pack that will include:
- A paper bag
- Boxed water
- Nut-free granola bar
By funding this goal, you are not only feeding children in NYC, but you are also helping our students learn to put their knowledge and skills as public health pioneers to work.
