Long Island Cares

Long Island Cares, Inc.-The Harry Chapin Food Bank is the regional food bank for Nassau and Suffolk County. Founded by the late singer/songwriter and social activist, Harry Chapin in 1980, Long Island Cares brings together all available resources for the benefit of the hungry and food insecure on Long Island and, to the best of our ability, provides for the humanitarian needs of our community. Our goals are to improve food security for families, sponsor programs that help individuals and families achieve self-sufficiency, and educate the general public about the causes and consequences of hunger and food insecurity on Long Island. Our organization contracts with New York State and the Department of Health, Hunger Prevention Nutrition Assistance Program, and the USDA Emergency Food Assistance Program to administer two of the government's major hunger relief programs for the Long Island Region
