Assemblyman Durso Joined Island Harvest Food Bank in Support of Stamp Out Hunger

Assemblyman Michael Durso (R-Massapequa Park) recently joined Island Harvest Food Bank, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), and the United States Postal Service in support of the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive, the nation’s largest single day food collection campaign.

Long Island residents were encouraged to leave non-perishable food donations by their mailbox for their letter carrier to collect. All food collected in Nassau and Suffolk counties benefited Island Harvest by providing supplemental food support to more than 300,000 Long Islanders who face hunger and food insecurity, including nearly one-third of those who are children.

“Throughout these challenging times, Long Islanders have united to make sure those in need have enough food to eat.It is a responsibility we share as a community,” said Durso.I would like to thank the USPS and our letter carriers for participating in this important campaign. And a special thanks to all the residents who donated food to help Stamp Out Hunger.”

All food collected will benefit Island Harvest Food Bank to help Long Islanders struggling to put food on their tables.
