Make a Difference

You can make a difference in the lives of thousands of Long Islanders who are experiencing hunger, poverty or food insecurity. Donate, volunteer or advocate for Long Island Cares, one of this region’s most comprehensive hunger assistance organizations. A local charity, Long Island Cares relies on the generosity of corporations and individuals like you to help fulfill our mission – and fight hunger in this community.

Help us increase the amount of food we distribute . . . increase the nutritional quality of that food . . . assist more families in becoming self-sufficient . . . or speak for those whose voices are silent because they are too young or too hungry and weak to speak.

Best of all, when you donate money, food, your talents or time to Long Island Cares, you can be confident that your donation is truly making a difference in the lives of your neighbors. In fact, 92% of our expenditures support our programs; only 8% of our costs go to fundraising and administration.
