Celebrating Harry Chapin's vision of a "Hunger Free Long Island"
Welcome to our Ruby Anniversary Celebration! Long Island Cares is proud to be celebrating 40 years of fighting hunger on Long Island, and to honor the legacy of our founder Harry Chapin – a singer, Grammy Award-winning songwriter, philanthropist, and social activist. Harry successfully lobbied Congress and President Jimmy Carter to establish the first-of-its-kind Presidential Commission on World Hunger, he started Long Island Cares - one of the country’s first regional food banks - raised and donated millions of dollars to fight hunger and inspired thousands of his fans to support this cause.
Harry’s passion to end hunger and build a just world is continued today by his wife and partner Sandy Chapin, a dedicated Board of Directors, and talented staff and volunteers working out of Long Island Cares’ 38,000 square foot facility in Hauppauge, as well as our hunger assistance and humanitarian centers in Freeport, Lindenhurst, Huntington Station, and our newest location in Hampton Bays.
Long Island Cares continues Harry’s vision of a hunger-free Long Island with the generous support of corporations, foundations, businesses, local and state government, and dedicated donors like you.
