Long Island Cares is one of Long Island’s premiere food banks located in Hauppauge, supplying other organizations, such as soup kitchens and shelters, with much needed food items. We visited them today, during National Food Bank week, to get an idea as to what the company is all about.
Walking into their gigantic warehouse, you get an immediate understanding as to their dedication and purpose… feeding Long Island. The company has tremendous buying power, being able to buy 10 dollars worth of food when most people would spend 40 dollars in a supermarket. They also obtain their supplies through various corporate organizations, government funding, and the general public.
They’ve also expanded their services by now offering on-site services for those in need of immediate attention, as well as for those even struggling to feed their pets. These services, as well as many others, rely heavily on the dedication of the staff and numerous volunteers who all expressed a deep feeling of satisfaction in knowing that they’re helping to make a difference.
