By tailoring our services to the specific needs of Long Islanders, we bring meaningful impacts that last.
Hunger is found in every community on Long Island, but it hits hardest for some very particular groups. For these people, Island Harvest is there with specific help. We deliver distinct assistance and services that are designed especially to help children, seniors and veterans.
For example, Island Harvest is dedicated to making sure that at-risk children get the nutrition and other help that they need to excel in school. Our Kids Weekend Backpack Program feeds and educates children during the school year, while our Summer Food Service Program reaches children when school is out. And all year long, we provide resources and referrals that help the children in so many interrelated ways. We also are targeting specific programs to seniors, veterans, families and more.
