PSEG Long Island and Island Harvest’s Power to Feed kicks off in Massapequa

The beginning of this year’s Power to Feed Long Island food drive has been significantly impactful, thanks to generous donations from the people of Massapequa and the surrounding communities totaling over 2,100 pounds.

According to Island Harvest Food Bank, the Stop & Shop on the corner of Hicksville Road and Jerusalem Avenue in Massapequa saw the equivalent of more than 1,800 meals donated at their collection event on Friday, May 24.

The event brought out dozens of community members who provided cash, food, personal care items and pet supplies. PSEG Long Island employee-volunteers were on site to hand out reusable shopping bags and LED light bulbs as thank-you gifts for their contributions.

Six more collection events are scheduled through September, listed here:

Saturday, June 8: Stop & Shop East Northport, 3126 Jericho Turnpike, East Northport

Friday, June 21: Stop & Shop Levittown, 3750 Hempstead Turnpike, Levittown
