Feeding Long Island’s Seniors
At Long Island Cares, we understand the urgency of senior food insecurity. Our tailored solutions through the Supporting Our Seniors S.O.S program offer care and advocacy, empowering Long Island seniors in need.
- Our Approach:
We deliver coordinated services that create real change, addressing seniors’ unique needs with compassion.
- Supporting Our Seniors S.O.S Mobile Pantry:
A cornerstone of our efforts is our Supporting Our Seniors S.O.S Mobile Pantry. We provide monthly distribution of emergency food to senior community centers across Long Island. These packages are designed to supplement their home pantries and monthly shopping lists, offering essential sustenance when they need it the most.
- What’s Included:
Each bag of emergency food contains non-perishable, nutritious items like cereals, fish, produce, and more – a diverse selection catering to dietary needs.
- Going the Extra Mile:
Our dedicated team extends beyond just food delivery. We provide friendly visits, skilled assistance, and genuine compassion to uplift the spirits of the seniors we serve. We believe in creating a strong sense of community and support that goes beyond food assistance.
- Together, We Make an Impact:
At Long Island Cares, our commitment to seniors is unwavering – we strive to improve the lives of older Long Islanders and make a lasting positive impact on their well-being. Our goal is not just to fill stomachs but to fill hearts with hope and connection.
