Advocacy/MICAH


‘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. 


 In 2010 MICAH became a program of Island Harvest and is a part of our continuing advocacy efforts.


‘MICAH 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.
