Island Harvest Ribbon Cutting
Island Harvest is Long Island’s largest hunger relief organization. It delivers millions of pounds of good, surplus food – much of which might otherwise go to waste – to a network of 570 Long Island-based food pantries, soup kitchens and other non-profit organization that offer feeding services for those in need. It provides a vital supply of food to counter the sharply rising problem of hunger. This year, Island Harvest became one of those who farm on the Sisters of St. Joseph’s land in Brentwood. On October 23, there will be a ribbon-cutting event at the farm to formally recognize Island harvest’s new venture of producing fresh vegetables for distribution.
