On Friday, February 13th, 2015 the NBA was busy not only preparing for the All-Star festivities, but they also took the time to roll up their sleeves & join forces with the World’s first food rescue organization (City Harvest) for an incredible day of service.
Current All-Stars (Chris Paul, Tim Duncan, Carmelo Anthony, Damian Lillard, Jeff Teague etc), retired players (Dikembe Mutombo, Horace Grant, Muggsy Bogues, JYD, A.C. Green etc), NBA partners and Chef Mario Batali joined hundreds of volunteers for this daylong event in co-operation with SAP and State Farm.
160,000 pounds of food was sorted and packed with love to benefit over 10,000 New Yorkers who are in need.
This was a great day for the NBA and the city of New York, it was great to see everyone come together to help get all that food processed, sorted and packed for those who need it! Lots of smiles, great music, a very positive atmosphere and overall an amazing event!
