In celebration of World Autism Awareness Day, City Harvest in Sunset Park welcomed students from P226M to join the fight against food insecurity. P226M operates a transition program for young adults aged 18-22 with diverse learning abilities from across the city.

Today, these students had the opportunity to pack produce that will be distributed to food pantries and individuals in need throughout New York. This experience not only helps address hunger in the community but also provides valuable skills for the students.

Sarah Aiken, a special education teacher at P226M, explained how the event served a dual purpose. Students learned 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 excitement about partnering with P226M on such a meaningful occasion. Celebrating diversity and working together to make a difference in the community is a priority for City Harvest, and events like these help further that mission.
