Actress, model, and The View co-host Jenny McCarthy recently hosted the “Daily News Readers Care To Feed The Hungry” holiday food drive sponsored by Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy, City Harvest, and the Daily News. Held at a midtown Manhattan firehouse, the two-hour food drive collected non-perishable food donations for City Harvest and those in need during the holiday season.
Those who attended the event had the chance to meet, take pictures with, and receive autographs from Jenny and the local fireman. Jenny was on-hand collecting the food donations as a way to support her hungry neighbors in New York City. The TV personality and mom-of-one, to son Evan, 11, shared why the food drive is important to her.
“City Harvest is the number one food drive in NYC, and I am a big believer in paying it forward – especially around the holidays,” she said. “It’s not just about giving to your friends and family, but looking to the needs of others as well. One in five people are in the poverty level, and the effort that Cold-EEZE and City Harvest puts into the food drive every year is just proof of what this city means to me now – everyone has each other’s back and I love it!”
And what is Jenny looking forward to the most for the holidays?
“For me, the holidays are all about family–being with my family and eating great food,” she shared. “Holidays are the best time of the year.”View Slideshow »»
