As you may know, hunger on Long Island is at an all time high, partially because of the downturn in the economy, lack of enough new job creation, as well as reductions in the food stamp program. Our Chapter works with Long Island Harvest, which is one of the two largest agencies out here trying to feed the hungry. Read more...

On behalf of the members of the Long Island Chapter of The Transition Network, Judy Brambrut, Long Island TTN Community Outreach/Volunteer Chair, presented Island Harvest CEO/President, Randi Shubin Dresner, with checks totaling $2,000. At our incredibly successful Chinese Luncheon and Auction held on Sunday, January 26, 2014, our members opened their hearts and wallets so TTN women could reach out to help feed the hungry people here on Long Island. The Chinese Auction brought in $2,000 and we are proud to have decided that every penny was being donated to Island Harvest, the largest hunger relief organization on Long Island. Read more...
