Over 300,000 Long Islanders face food insecurity, including over 79,000 children.

Celebrating a 40 Year Legacy

2021 marks the 40th anniversary of Long Island losing one of its greatest advocates – Harry Chapin. Beginning June 25th, Long Island Cares, WhyHunger, and the Harry Chapin Foundation will commemorate the lasting impact of a great humanitarian throughout July with concerts, food drives, and more.

Let’s all come together and spread Harry Chapin’s message:
“To know is to care, to care is to act, to act is to make a difference.”
