The Rudman Family Food Pantry at the Mid-Island Y JCC focuses on homebound seniors and low income families throughout Long Island. Nearly half of the people we help are poor/near poor. The other half are people who can get by under normal circumstances, but are struggling now because of the current crisis. The monthly requests for assistance have quadrupled since March 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. We receive new requests every single day!
In addition to non-perishable foods, household supplies and personal care items, the Rudman Family Food Pantry now has volunteers shopping for perishable groceries and delivering them. We are also delivering pre-made meals to homebound seniors. More than 400 meals will be delivered this week!
No one should go hungry on Long Island! The Rudman Family Food Pantry prides itself on maintaining peoples dignity by providing what they want and need. We address a families dietary needs, provide kosher food items, and make sure the kids have their favorite foods and brands.
As we grow our programs, it is our responsibility to make sure individuals and families get the help they need. There are many ways you can help!
