Long Island Food Pantries

A great surplus of food is generated every day in the US, but while some of it goes to waste and some is used to overindulge, there are many people on Long Island who simply cannot afford to eat enough food or obtain nutritional options. These food pantries help to provide healthy, well balanced meals to those in need, making sure that our neighbors do not have to go hungry. By volunteering your time or donating food, you can help to keep Long Islanders healthy and hunger-free.
