Volunteers with Long Island Cares say they are seeing 100 to 120 families a day at some of their food pantries ahead of the holiday season.
The nonprofit is stocked with just under 10,000 turkeys ready to send out, but Reyna Felix, a program associate, says the problems will still be there for Long Islanders following the holidays.
“This is Long Island where rents are $1,000, $2,000, $3,000 and after they pay their daily expenses and their phone, their electric, heat, their rent, there’s no money left over for food,” Felix says. “And I see it with middle class people coming here, regular people coming here.”
