Many in Nassau County experience hunger
The largest growing population experiencing hunger or food insecurity is working families. These families work hard but live on an income that can’t stretch from paycheck to paycheck. They often cannot afford fresh and healthier food for their families.
Barnabas feeds over 120 people a day
Our Food Pantry helps feed over 120 people a day in Nassau County. Last year we also fed more than 200 hungry school children throughout the school year with our SnackPacks program.
We use the multiplier effect
A donation of $1 to Barnabas enables our Food Pantry to purchase $7-10 worth of food. This is due to the efficiencies of large scale food banks that supply us with reclaimed and surplus food as well as wholesale purchasing power.
