Hunger In School is Real

Every $10 helps provide food for 6 meals!

Let’s ensure that kids eat nutritious meals.

50% of students in 39 Long Island school districts receive free/reduced-price breakfast and lunch. These may be the only meals they eat.

Long Island Cares supports students with our Kids Cafe, Pack It Up For Kids, and Mobile School Pantry programs. These programs run during the academic school year (Sept. – June).

“When I’m hungry, I get tired, or I’ll get distracted. But when I’m not, I’m on-task and can focus.” Elijah, 11 yrs. old
