Kids United Against Hunger

Kids United Against Hunger is a Long Island Cares project funded by United Way of Long Island that helps teach kids about hunger and provides them with the opportunity to volunteer at our location in Hauppauge.

Available to students in grades three through eight, Kids United Against Hunger is a 3 hour program that young volunteers once each month.

The program comprises of:

  • Hunger 101workshop, which teaches the children about hunger, raising their awareness and understanding of hunger on Long Island and its many causes.
  • An orientation to Long Island Cares and how our organization works to help food and supplies reach people in need.
  • A community service project, in which the children join in a group food sorting activity.
