Today marks 2 weeks since we were hit by Superstorm Sandy. The devastation to our Island is unimaginable - it will take a long time for normal to return to so many. Governor Andrew Cuomo said it best, "New Yorkers really are at their best when things are at their worst." His voice was very comforting to hear on the radio, as so many were without the creature comforts of television.
There are so many Long Islanders who have lost everything - it is heartbreaking for everyone. Because damage is widespread, many Long Islanders who normally would not rely on food banks may need assistance and relief groups want to reach them. Fortunately, there are local Food Pantries who both accept donations as well as feed those in need.
This is the list of some of the most needed food and speciality items requested by Food Pantries:
1543 Montauk Highway, Bellport (631) 758-7584 - Note, they will have numerous food distribution days & locations throughout the week - see their site for details.
