Feeding Our Families Virtual Food Drive

Non-perishable food donations have declined while the need continues to grow – forcing Long Island Cares to rely more heavily on financial donations to restock shelves, deliver shelf-stable goods to families and keep the emergency food chain stable.

As we continue to face these challenges due to the impact of COVID-19, NBC 4 New York/WNBC, Telemundo 47/WNJU, and our supermarket partner Stop & Shop are teaming up to lend a helping hand.

Starting May 18 and continuing through May 24, Tri-State residents can locate and make a financial donation to Long Island Cares through a special Feeding our Families fundraising campaign.

Funds generated through the community appeal will help us restock shelves and supply non-perishable goods to pantries, agencies and other front-line, anti-hunger community organizations.

Every dollar Matters!  $1 equals 1.12 meals.



Thank you for supporting Long Island Cares!
