P226M, a transition program for young adults aged 18-22 with a range of learning abilities from across the city, welcomed over 200 million students to City Harvest in Sunset Park this morning. The event was held to mark World Autism Awareness Day and to fight against food insecurity.

City Harvest regularly hosts these students, providing them with valuable skills as they package produce to be distributed to food pantries and individuals in need throughout New York City. According to Sarah Aiken, special education teacher at P226M, the event has a dual purpose. Students learn important skills such as self-advocacy, counting, asking for help and social interaction by engaging in activities like greeting supervisors during their time at City Harvest.

Olivia McMahon, Senior Manager of Volunteer Programs for City Harvest, expressed her excitement to partner with P226M on such a significant occasion. Celebrating diversity and working together to make a difference in the community is a priority for City Harvest, and events like this help advance that mission.
