Online Food Market Comes To New Hyde Park

Two Long Island childhood friends, Scott Reich and Michael Winik, recently left their respective careers as an attorney and investment banker to pursue their dream of starting a business together, the online food market OurHarvest in New Hyde Park. 

 

OurHarvest’s next scheduled pick-up is on Aug. 9 at Notre Dame Parish, 1 Aberdeen Rd., New Hyde Park. OurHarvest also has locations in Huntington, Roslyn, Hicksville, and Port Washington, with additional locations slated to open this year.

 

“When Mike and I decided to start a business, we knew it had to reflect our shared love of food, address the lifestyles of our fellow Long Islanders, and be socially responsible,” said Reich. “People want access to high-quality, fresh food at affordable prices, and that’s exactly what OurHarvest offers. We work with local farms and fishermen to bring the best all-natural products we can find to the market at peak freshness while working with community organizations to combat hunger at the same time.”

 

OurHarvest provides consumers with farm-fresh, natural foods at competitive prices while supporting Long Island food-based charities and pantries. OurHarvest customers log onto the website and choose a convenient market location and pick-up date from the dropdown menu on the homepage. There are more than 35 choices of fresh, all-natural, high-quality foods, boneless skinless chicken breasts, Scottish salmon, Long Island wild tuna, grass-fed ground beef and different cuts of steak, pasture-raised egg, among other foods. Additional items are regularly being added to their product selection. 

 

“Our model is compelling, especially when you compare us to other food suppliers,” noted Winik. “Unlike grocery stores and specialty shops, there are no questions about artificial additives, mislabeled products, or where your food comes from. We also ensure that the farmers get their fair share, so everybody wins.”

 

For every order of $25 or more, OurHarvest donates a meal to a local food pantry or food bank to help combat hunger on Long Island. To date, more than 500 meals have been donated (including to

Long Island Cares and Island Harvest), with more donations on the way as demand for their products continues to rise.

 

The two co-founders grew up in Roslyn Heights and attended the University of Pennsylvania together, where they were roommates. They regularly talked about going into business together and always wanted to start a company that has strong societal value.

 Online food market OurHarvest has recently joined forces with Mineola-based Island Harvest Food Bank, Long Island’s largest hunger relief organization, to help feed hungry Long Islanders over Thanksgiving and throughout the holiday season.

Despite a disappointing playoff loss against the Wantagh Warriors, Sewanhaka Indians Head Coach George Kasimatis, is pleased with his football team’s season. 

“I’m proud of my team,” he said. “But you are never satisfied unless you win the whole thing.”

 

The Indians faced a big challenge this year, moving up into Conference II left them as the new kids on the block, unfamiliar with the teams they would be going against. 

Kasimatis will have a tall task next year replacing graduating seniors, which made up most of his starting lineup. Kasimatis said most of the offensive line, such as Danny Gianotti, Adrian Gonzalez and Louis Segarra III, and the defensive line, such as Justin Alexandre, Peter LaTorre and Peter Militano are seniors, many of which have started multiple years for him. 

The fifth seeded Sewanhaka Indians traveled to Wantagh to take on the fourth seeded Wantagh Warriors on Friday, Nov. 7 for its opening playoff game. 

 

The Indians opened the game sluggish on offense, and were held in check throughout the first quarter. The Indians defense did its best to keep the team within striking distance, but field position form shaky special teams play, put them in a difficult position. 

 

Warriors running back Dylan Beckwith, was able to punch in a 15-yard touchdown run, to give the Warriors a one score lead after the first quarter.
