Supporting Community Organizations

In addition to our weekly Food Share locations, Community Solidarity also supplies dozens of soup kitchens, food pantries and community organizations with free fresh groceries each and every week. Our volunteers transport these donations directly to these supported organizations in neighborhoods across Long Island and NYC in a concerted effort to expand our reach into communities we don’t directly operate in.

Sharing the wealth is what Community Solidarity is all about. Our grassroots decentralized logistics gift us with incredible amounts of nutritious foods and our goal is to spread the benefit of those foods as far as we can.

The following is a list of just a few of the organizations we share free groceries to.
