Becoming a Member Agency

Member Agency Benefits

  • Becoming an Island Harvest member agency enables you to successfully and cost-efficiently provide food and meals to low-income people in your community, making it possible for your  member agency to gain access to resources and services to enable your program to build capacity.
  • Member agencies can attend one of our centralized distributions throughout Nassau and Suffolk County. And best of all, our delivery operations are free and right to your doorstep. Island Harvest dispatches 5 Island Harvest Vehicles each day and we have about 1000 active volunteers who assist us in our direct delivery program. This has enabled us to provide more than 202,343 meals within our network.
  • Island Harvest not only provides your member agency with a variety of nutritious shelf-stable and fresh foods, we also offer you guidance in many areas including, grant applications, nutrition and food safety education, public policy and research. To learn more about Island Harvest’s resource and services for  member agencies please contact: Allison Puglia at 631-873-4775 or email
  • There is no membership fee or direct fee for any product donated to Island Harvest. This means that you will benefit from the abundance of food and variety of resources provided by Island Harvest.
