Hempstead Food Share
|Every Sunday @ 2:00pm|
W. Columbia St. & Station Plaza.
Hempstead, NY 11550
The Hempstead Food Share is located directly outside the Hempstead train station (on the north end of W Columbia St, one block east of Main St.)
Every Sunday Long Island Food Not Bombs shares thousands of pounds of fresh organic vegetarian and vegan groceries with hundreds of fellow community members. The goal is to help empower the community and community members by alleviating the burdens of social/economic oppressions like poverty. We do this by sharing all or at least a good portion of the food a person might need for that week.
At our Hempstead Food Share we set up tables with fruits, veggies, breads, prepared meals, frozen foods, desserts and hot vegan meals. We also share clothing, toys, books, toiletries, seeds, plants, flowers, school/educational supplies, information and other essentials.
We are always looking for more hands and more food to share and if you'd like to help with either please feel free to stop by the Food Share or contact us at LongIslandFoodNotBombs[at]gmail[dot]com. If you'd like to find out more information on how to share food, clothing, supplies or other essentials with us please click here.
