A Powerful New Initiative
Power to Feed Long Island
We've set a goal to provide enough food for 21,000 meals across Long Island. Here's how you can help!
PSEG Long Island is excited to team up with Island Harvest on a new initiative to help people in our communities facing food insecurity. It’s called Power to Feed Long Island and you can help.
Summer is a particularly challenging time for food banks. Most see their stock dwindle rapidly and donations decrease. When schools close, daily school meals stop for thousands of Long Island children who depend on them. We set a goal to provide enough food for 21,000 meals. Please join us.
Together, we're collecting...
Donate Across Long Island
Stop by any of the following events with a donation of non-perishable food from 10AM - 2PM.
It took a pandemic to shine a brighter light on the issue of food insecurity on Long Island. But the fact is that hunger on Long Island is not a new problem. Approximately 600,000 people on Long Island experience food insecurity – including 90,000 children.*
"We have a longstanding partnership with Island Harvest and in past years, our employees have volunteered many hours to deliver and sort food at their locations. So when we heard Island Harvest needed support, we jumped at the chance to work with them once again."
Over the next few months, look for us at supermarkets across Long Island where we will be holding food collection drives. Our goal is to collect enough food for 21,000 meals. The Power to Feed Long Island is just one of the ways PSEG Long is committed to giving back to our communities across Long Island and the Rockaways.
Listen to Dan Eichhorn, President and COO of PSEG Long Island and Randi Shubin Dresner, President and CEO of Island Harvest, talk about the importance of the Power to Feed Long Island and the growing issue of food insecurity on Long Island and throughout our community.
Feeding America’s 2014 Hunger in America study found that 79% of clients purchase inexpensive, unhealthy foods just to make ends meet. However, clients say they are looking for healthier foods to feed themselves and their families. Here are some suggestions of healthy foods to bring to the collection drives.
Healthy Non-Perishable Goods:
Canned Beans/Dried Beans
Peanut Butter or Other Nut Butters
Canned Fruit in Juice (Not in Light or Heavy Syrup)
