The Long Island Food Council is helping Island Harvest to get the word out about this important collection event ? It’s called the National ASSOC of Letter Carriers Food Drive –  slated for May 11, 2019.

Here’s how it works –

Residents can put a can of food (or more) at their mailbox and the letter carrier picks the food up and delivers to Island Harvest. We hope to collect over 500,000 lbs. this year. Imagine how many meals this would support for vulnerable Long Islanders?
In the past, we commonly hear from LI’ers stating they had not hear about the drive but would have participated.  Please share this post to help Island Harvest reach its goals.

In addition Island Harvest is looking for  700 volunteers and teams – families and businesses to help on May 13 and  14 from 8 am to 8 pm (two hour shifts).
