Power to Feed Long Island

42,616 meals – nearly 43% more than our 30,000 goal has been collected!

Thank you to everyone across Long Island and the Rockaways for your generosity.  Also a big thank you to everyone at Island Harvest Food Bank, Stop & Shop, our employees and the community volunteers who contributed to the initiative! 

“PSEG Long Island’s Power to Feed Long Island initiative has brought out the best in our community and we are overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of Long Islanders. With their help, we were able to collect 12,616 more meals than the lofty goal of 30,000 we set in June. This is a powerful affirmation of what Long Island is all about. Helping each other is just what we do. I am so proud of our employees who supported these events with their time, money and efforts.”

Food Insecurity on Long Island

More than 67,000 Long Island children deal with food insecurity and the pandemic has exacerbated the issue, with a 26% increase over pre-pandemic levels. That’s in addition to a 10% increase in food costs and a 95% increase in fuel costs. These factors have added to the challenges for Island Harvest to ensure our neighbors in need have access to healthy food and services. See how you can make a difference.

"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."
