Our Legacy

Harry Foster Chapin was an American singer-songwriter best known for his folk rock songs including “Taxi,” “W*O*L*D,” “Flowers Are Red” and the number one hit “Cat’s in the Cradle.” Chapin was also a dedicated humanitarian who fought to end world hunger.

Although Harry died tragically in a car accident in 1981 just one year after founding Long Island’s first food bank, his legacy lives on in Long Island Cares, which has evolved into one of the region’s most comprehensive hunger assistance organizations serving thousands of individuals and families in need.
