Power to Feed Long Island
Helping Those in Need
We're proud to team up with Island Harvest once again this summer to bring back Power to Feed Long Island!
PSEG Long Island’s Power to Feed Long Island program is back this summer with a new goal to collect enough food for 30,000 meals. PSEG Long will be teaming up with Island Harvest and local summer camps to help families facing food insecurity across Long Island and the Rockaways. We’ll be working together to provide special support for our seniors and veterans with food and household items collection and a series of resource fairs for these particularly at-risk communities.
Look for the Power to Feed Long Island program coming to your community soon.
Together, we're collecting...

‘Power to Feed’ Returns to Fight Hunger
PSEG Long Island, Island Harvest Food Bank and Stop & Shop kicked off PSEG Long Island’s second annual Power to Feed Long Island summer-long food drive. Seven PSEG Long Island Power to Feed Long Island employee ambassadors, along with anti-hunger advocates and government officials gathered at the Stop & Shop in Massapequa to donate food and money, and call on Long Islanders to take action to support neighbors facing food insecurity.
Meet Our Ambassadors
In addition to generous community support, PSEG Long Island employees have contributed greatly to the success of Power to Feed Long Island. Look for our employees volunteering at food collection sites across Long Island. This initiative is just one of the many ways that PSEG Long Island and its employees are committed to giving back to our communities.
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.
A Success in 2021!
Last summer's Power to Feed Long Island initiative exceeded its goal, raising the equivalent of 21,944 meals – nearly a thousand more meals than its 21,000-meal objective. Three months and six food drives yielded 10,106 pounds of food and supplies, plus nearly $2,200 in cash donations, and online donations totaling more than $4,000.
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)
