Our Story

Bite

Bite is an idea conceived by its founder, Christian Hurtado. He saw the amount of food waste and the amount of hungry people in New York City and he thought one problem could be used to solve the other. Growing up, Christian’s mother was one of seven siblings in a low-income family and sometimes they would go to sleep hungry. Whenever she recalls those times, her eyes begin to tear up and in addition to the sadness and frustration her parents must have felt, she remembers the pain and hurt of what it is like to go to sleep hungry. This story not only taught Christian the value of a meal, but instilled him with a mission.

Bite comes from a desire to help people in need. Since I was young, my mother would emphasize the importance of food and always made me aware that I should never take for granted the meals I am fortunate enough to receive. Herself, having experienced hunger, instilled that in me.

This initiative has been a very humbling experience that has allowed me the opportunity meet those who I otherwise wouldn't have before COVID-19. It has made me realize that it shouldn't take such drastic measures before stepping up and lending a helping hand.

Bite represents the idea that a little bit can go a long way.
