Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board are urging residents to donate to food banks during this time of need.

“As Americans begin to self-isolate on a larger scale, residents are emptying store shelves of non-perishables, which in turn is negatively impacting the amount of donations to local food banks,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “For families in need who rely on donations from food pantries and meal programs, we urge you to support your local food banks by donating pasta, jarred sauce, canned tuna fish, soup, cereal, and other non-perishables.”

For more information about organizations collecting food items and non-perishables, visit their websites:

Additionally, New York State has created the COVID-19 Volunteer and Donation Assistance Program. To find out more about getting involved with New York States volunteer programs at this time, visit the following links:

The town encourages local organizations collecting food and non-perishables to email press@northhempsteadny.gov. Organizations will be listed at www.northhempsteadny.gov/coronavirus.
