WHY: Due to Long Island’s high cost of living, approximately one-in-ten Long Islanders now face a daily struggle with not having enough to eat, and each week 70,000 people are seeking food assistance from community-based pantries, soup kitchens, and other emergency feeding programs supplied by Island Harvest Food Bank. Food insecurity, the state of lacking reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food, affects working families, senior citizens, veterans, and children. Island Harvest Food Bank’s mobile food pantry helps bring much-needed food support directly to those who need it most.
WHO: Island Harvest Food Bank staff, PAL volunteers, community members.
