Meet Maria and her 7-year-old son Jaden.

Maria works in housekeeping. “I have a job, but that’s not enough,” she said.  “Everything is so expensive.”  The food they receive “helps so much,” she said. Jaden loves when she makes pasta.  “I like eating with my family,” Jaden said.

Register now to help families like Maria’s on Long Island.
