Island Harvest Food Bank
Island Harvest Food Bank, a resource for local veterans’ organizations, provides food support, nutrition education, and connection to other services and benefits. In 2011, Island Harvest launched Operation: HOPE to provide the community’s veterans, active-duty personnel, and military families with more direct and specialized services using a veteran-serving-veteran peer support model. Operation: HOPE provides Long Island veterans and their families with healthy food and supportive services to maintain their independence. BWF funds will support critical supportive services and distribute healthy meals to Long Island veterans, active-duty personnel, and military families, who are impacted by poverty and food insecurity.
