Life Cycle EventsWeddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and graduations are chances to make some noise, and make a difference! Here are some ideas:
• Donate your surplus food. Island Harvest will make arrangements with your caterer to rescue any excess food. There are no additional costs to the event host or catering facility for donating the excess food.
• Make a contribution in lieu of a traditional favor. A tax-deductible donation can be made in honor of your guests. Click here to donate
• Create theme centerpieces. A beautiful basket of seasonal fruit (whole), toys, personal products or packaged food that can be donated to Island Harvest after your celebration.
• Spread the word. Let your guests know you're helping to end hunger on Long Island! Island Harvest can provide sample text for a table tent card or scroll so you can inform your guests of your generosity and introduce them to Island Harvest's mission.
Next time you give a party, give yourself and your guests something extra to feel good about!
