One Too Many

Local officials have estimated that 90,000 children, living in Nassau County, are not getting sufficient food. Not in Appalachia, not in Africa, not in Asia, right here in Nassau County. In the richest country in the history of the world, there are thousands of hungry children. We all know there are hungry children, living in terrible poverty, in other parts of the globe—but right here in America? Yes, just a few miles from your comfortable living room.

Every week, when I visit the Interfaith Nutrition Network soup kitchen in Hempstead, I see some of their faces. I also see mothers and fathers who have lost their jobs and have nowhere else to turn for help. The soup kitchen opens at 10 a.m., but there is a line outside the door starting at 8 a.m. Last year, this soup kitchen was feeding an average of 300 to 350 hungry people a day (Monday through Friday). This year it’s common for us to serve 450 or more meals per day.

If you’ve had some good fortune in your life, please join me in supporting the work of the Interfaith Nutrition Network, which has been providing food, shelter, and support services for Long Islanders in need for more than 25 years. Every $25 which you donate will help feed 12 hungry people.

Please make your check payable to The Interfaith Nutrition Network; donations may be mailed to: Dave Golbert, 7 Lee Court West, Great Neck, NY 11024. To donate food, clothing, or personal care items (soap, shampoo, tooth paste, etc.), please call 917-418-2451 or email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

I hope you will agree with me that even one hungry child is one too many. “Let no one go hungry while there is food on our table.”
