The Rudman Family Food Pantry at the Mid-Island Y JCC focuses on homebound seniors and low income families. Approximately half of the people we help are poor/near poor and usually receive monthly assistance from our pantry. 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 has tripled since March 2020. 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. Approximately, 400 meals will be delivered this week!
There are many ways you can help!
