‘Named after Micah, the Hebrew prophet
who calls us to "do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our
God," MICAH was formed in 2007 as coalition of Long Island congregations,
agencies and organizations to reach across communities to address the issues
that are at the root of poverty and hunger.
MICAH became a program of Island Harvest and is a part of our
continuing advocacy efforts.
is comprised of 400 leaders from more than 270 congregations and agencies on
Long Island. By uniting the faith community’s commitment to service and a
grassroots network of action we can further the reach and impact of our
mission to end hunger and reduce food waste on Long Island.’

Island Harvest’s Mission for MICAH
MICAH's program mission is to focus
on education and advocacy for the services, programs and public policies that
alleviate hunger on Long Island.
Faith traditions speak for the
dignity of people in poverty in God’s sight. People of all faiths can to come
together to take action to end hunger beyond donating and handing out food.
The MICAH program contributes to
Island Harvest’s voice in its advocacy efforts and educational program by
distributing information about hunger issues and designing action steps that
you can take. We are building an advocacy network through shared resources,
education and community outreach.
