A Food & Fund Drive is a wonderful way to help our many neighbors on Long Island who know hunger first- hand. Hundreds of thousands of Long Islanders turn to our network of more than 300 member agencies, including local food pantries, soup kitchens and other non-profit feeding programs.
Food Drives collecting under 500 lbs. of food (approximately 500 items) MUST be delivered to one of our warehouse facilities. This helps us better utilize our resources. Food Drives collecting over 500 lbs. of food can be picked up by one of our vehicles. When scheduling pickups, we do require a one-week notice. However, we have two distribution centers that you can easily drop your food off at any time. Food Drive boxes can be picked up at either facility.
We appreciate your awareness of this year-round issue, and your willingness to be part of the solution. The more food that is donated, the more we can assure that everyone who needs assistance can get it. We hope that you will also consider collecting funds as part of your drive. These collections will help Island Harvest support our food collection, education, outreach and so much more.
