Mission Statement

Our mission is to end hunger and reduce food waste on Long Island.

Description

Since 1992, Island Harvest has been serving as the bridge between those who have excess food and those who need it... a trained corps of dedicated volunteers rescues surplus food from commercial donors and collects canned and packaged foods from collection campaigns. This food is delivered to hudreds of community-based non-profit organizations, which results in a reduction of their food expenses; it is a morale booster to the employees and patrons of the 500+ commercial food establishments who donate their excess foods; and supports the prevention of nutritious food from becoming waste--a very tangible benefit to the environment. Most importantly, these food rescue efforts help to feed tens of thousands of men, women and children right here on Long Island.
