Since 2015, Island Harvest has become one of the NutraScience Labs Team’s favorite avenues of community outreach.
As in years past, our food drive began with the “unofficial start” of the holiday season – November 1st and wrapped up just in time for our donations to be picked up before the start of the December holidays.
“As we make our way through the holidays and the winter months, it’s important to remember that there are so many opportunities for us to make a difference in the lives of our fellow Long Islanders. In today’s fast-paced world, I think it’s become all too easy for us to forget that sometimes those opportunities can be as simple as taking the time to pick up an extra bag of groceries.” -Vincent Tricarico, our VP of Contract Manufacturing.
When all was said and done, we were able to collect and donate 511 pounds of canned and non-perishable foods (11 pounds more than our target goal). Our donations resulted in 426 meals for Long Island families in need.
