Get Inspired to Host a Food Drive!

Our Food Drive program plays a large role in our ability to help Long Island’s food insecure individuals and families. We can only do our work thanks to supporters like you. Long Island Cares runs food drives all across Long Island throughout the entirety of the year. There is never a time when our Food Drive program is not active.

For in-person food drives, we will provide you with boxes and large posters for you to use. If needed, we offer both drop-off and pick-up services.

If you would like another option, you can also run a virtual food or supply drive. They are fun, easy, and lets you reach people beyond your local community. Our largest Virtual Food Drive event reached donors from 27 states and Washington D.C.!
