Island Harvest

Island Harvest works to end hunger and reduce food waste on Long Island. 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 donated to hundreds of community-based non-profit organizations, which results in a reduction of their food expenses. Since our founding, we have picked up more than 30 million pounds of nutritious food, with a value of more than 60 million dollars.
