Kids United Against Hunger
Kids United Against Hunger is a Long Island Cares project funded by United Way of Long Island that helps teach kids about hunger and provides them with the opportunity to volunteer at The Harry Chapin Food Bank in Hauppauge, New York.
Our players attended a 3 hour program in Hauppauge, NY on October 13, 2018. While they were there they did the following:
- A Hunger 101 workshop, which teaches the children about hunger, raising their awareness and understanding of hunger on Long Island and its many causes.
- An orientation to Long Island Cares and how our organization works to help food and supplies reach people in need.
- A community service project, in which the children join in a group food sorting activity. This includes sorting food, personal care items, household supplies, pet food and school supplies for distribution to Long Island Cares’ network of 580 community-based member agencies.
