Nathan's Donates to City Harvest

As part of the July Fourth event, Nathan’s Famous will donate 10,000 hot dogs to City Harvest, the world's oldest food rescue organization and a member of Second Harvest, the country’s largest charitable hunger-relief organization.

Nathan’s Famous President Wayne Norbitz will make the donation during the annual Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest that occurs on Coney Island beginning at 10 am on July Fourth.

“City Harvest does so much good for the people of New York City that it’s our pleasure to host them each year at the Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July celebration,” said Wayne Norbitz, president and COO of Nathan’s Famous. “Hunger is a terrible problem in American and we are pleased to assist City Harvest, a group the feeds nearly 300,000 New Yorkers each week.”

The Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest grows in popularity each year. Roughly 10,000 people attend the event live while over a million households tune in to the live ESPN broadcast.
