MAKE A DIFFERENCE Because Our Neighbors are Experiencing Hunger

Scan below to learn about volunteering, contributing, and other ways you can help: Island Harvest Food Bank is a leading hu- man services organization whose mission is to end hunger and reduce food waste on Long Island. The nonprofit seeks to accom- plish its goal through innovative programs and services aimed at enhanced hunger awareness, short-term case management, nutrition education, outreach and advocacy initiatives, a Workforce Skills Development Institute, an organic farm, and efficient food collection and distribution. The food bank’s work directly supports children, families, seniors, and veterans who turn to it in times of crisis. In addition, it supports a network of 300 community-based nonprofit orga- nizations throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties. Last year, Island Harvest provided 13 mil- lion meals to people facing hunger and food insecurity. Continued increased need across Long Island due to skyrocketing food costs and high inflation created additional chal- lenges for Island Harvest to ensure that it can get food to those in need. continued on page 27
