The Long Island Council of Churches, a Freeport-based emergency food and social service agency, received a $10,000 grant from the Nassau County Bar Association to support the nonprofit’s emergency food program.
The Council of Churches currently feeds close to 1,500 residents each month in Nassau County. In 2017, the agency served more than 250,000 meals to 30,000 Long Island residents.
“We are most grateful to the WE CARE Advisory Board of the Nassau County Bar Association for its generous support,” said council chairman Rev. Erik Rasmussen in a statement. “This grant will help us keep up with the increased number of hungry neighbors we are feeding in our Freeport emergency food center.”
